We'll just go ahead and save you the search. The moosehead answer is on page 233 at the very BACK of the book. But based on the table of contents, the whole book looks both informative and fun. And of course reading ANY of these books or the others we have here at the library would allow you to postpone actually DOING the cleaning for a little while longer. #JustSayin #TuesdayTitles
P.S. Warning: As one might expect from this title, the parasite book isn't for the the faint of heart. #Ew

Library Day Sponsor

Libby day sponsor 5.19.16

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hesston Public Library Board of Trustees sponsor today at the library in honor of Director Libby Albers, who recently completed her Master of Library Science degree through Emporia State University’s School of Library and Information Management (SLIM).

Please join us in congratulating her.  Great work, Libby!

The Library Board developed the Day Sponsor idea in 2012 as a way of helping the library “go the extra mile.” The library’s tax revenues support regular operations, but day sponsorships allow the library to go above and beyond in the areas of collections, programming and technology.
Honorees are recognized at the library, online, and in the local newspaper, and at a small reception at the library.  Day Sponsors also receive recognition through collection items in the library being designated in honor of the celebrated event/person/organization.
Contact the library if you would like to sponsor a day at the library!
