Hesston Public Library is dedicated to the health and safety of our patrons and staff.
We have not taken the decision lightly to close during this time of social distancing. We have been following the recommendations of the CDC, KDHE, and Harvey County Health Department. We have decided to close effective 3/16/2020 at 6:00pm. We will be evaluating the situation on a weekly basis.
The library closing details:
