"Where are the children? They're not behind the tortilla curtain, and I'm pretty sure shouting won't help. Maybe some glitter and glue will entice them to come back?"

Also, congratulations to Emily on her spectacular caption to last week's #TuesdayTitles! 😄🛸🐸👽

Getting set up for part 1 of Hesston Public Library’s Adult Lecture Series. Tonight we discuss Medicare and SHICK. Plan to join us at 6:30.

Part 2 is next Monday at 6:30. We will get to hear from Jim Grey about the early days of ranching and cattle drives.

And some of us are a little jealous that she got BOTH!! #FridayFunnies ...

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:

  • 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.
