Fellow color-coders and labelers! Teachers, organizers, and crafters! If you need 3/4" bright yellow circle stickers, we can hook you up.
They are the byproduct of another donut-shaped label we use, and we label lots of things and do little crafts with them, but we still have SO. MANY. YELLOW. DOTS. Call the library if you want to take some off our hands.

It was a windy morning, but we had fun putting up Bookwalk #2 for the summer. Stop by the arboretum to go on a “moon pie” adventure. ...

We actually don't usually have a designated theme when we choose our #TuesdayTitles, but it looks like this week's books ended up all being related to children. See any you might like to read? ...

Preschoolers

Join us for storytime at 9:30 or 10:30 on Wednesday mornings during the school year!  Geared toward ages 0-5, our theme for stories, songs, crafts, and snacks this year is “Read the Rainbow.”
We even provide Lincoln Perk coffee for a “mommy mixer” (and dads, grandparents, aunts & uncles…) between sessions.

But are there other library resources for kids who can’t read?  Absolutely!  You can still practice early literacy skills with your pre-reader.  The Kansas State Library promotes “6 by 6,” or six skills that will promote reading by age six:

  • Have Fun with Books
  • Notice Print All Around You
  • Talk, Talk, Talk
  • Look for Letters Everywhere
  • Tell Stories About Everything
  • Take Time to Rhyme

The Hesston Public Library has plenty of books, DVDs, and even toys and activity kits* to help you and your child practice these skills.

*Ask staff at the desk about borrowing our 6×6 early literacy kits or storypack backpacks.
