Donation Alert!
We are in need of food boxes for a craft. We are looking for pasta, cereal, stuffing, and cracker boxes. Please drop them off at the front desk by April 5th. Thank you!

Weather report from Hesston: it's still windy outside.
(But calm and cozy inside the library - come on in!)

We have very high winds in Hesston today, but nothing like what residents experienced on this date in 1990. View photos, video, and other artifacts from the Hesston Tornado at

Barbeque Benefit coming up soon!

Don’t forget to get your buttons for the Library Benefit BBQ on June 11. The BBQ, catered and co-sponsored by Knackies of Inman, will feature your choice of barbeque chicken or beef brisket.

But a great meal isn’t all we’ve got planned! The evening will include both a silent and live auction, with lots of great items donated by Hesston and area businesses. Items donated for the auction include:

  • A one-year membership to the Hesston Wellness Center
  • A photograph from Shutterworks Photography
  • A sports bag from Brown Shoe Fit Co. in McPherson
  • A piece of antique furniture from Emma Creeks Antiques
  • Gift baskets from A Cut Above, the Wild Geranium, Lincoln Perk, Hesston True Value, Stone Creek Nursery, and GLC Realty.

Any business that would like to donate an item or gift certificate can contact the library.

Reservation buttons for the barbeque can be purchased for $1 at the library and other area businesses, with the meal by donation. (It’s so we can know how much food to prepare!) Matching funds up to $1,000 have been applied for from the Northeast Sedgwick Co. Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, which means your donations will have an even greater impact!
