Preschoolers

Join us for storytime at 9:30 or 10:30 on Wednesday mornings during the school year!  Geared toward ages 0-4, our theme for stories, songs, crafts, and snacks this year is “Wild about Reading!”
We even provide Lincoln Perk coffee for a “mommy mixer” (and dads, grandparents, nannies, 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:

6 by 6 poster

  • 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.

Welcome to another great installment of
MONDAY MYSTERY - ONLINE EDITION!!

We have a fun photo challenge for today's #MondayMystery! And it should be fairly quick, too, because the whole point is that it doesn't have to be good!
We can't wait to see what you come up with!

GREAT BOOK! BAD COSTUME!

Using only things laying around your house, make a costume that goes with a good book. Then pose with the book and share the picture with us!

If you need inspiration, eBooks totally count, too!

(And if you're feeling camera shy, feel free to dress up a reluctantly cooperative pet, or even a stuffed animal or statue!)
