Happy World Book Day! 🌎📖
Obviously, this is one of our favorite days of the year! To help you celebrate, today's Tuesday Titles post offers you a few fun book-themed titles.

(Here at the Hesston Public Library, we get to see a LOT of books. And sometimes the titles of those books really make us stop and think...or laugh...or roll our eyes...or check out the book! So we thought we'd start sharing some of those with you. Watch for our upcoming Tuesday Titles posts each week. Which of those books might you want to read?) #WorldBookDay #WorldBookDay2019

The Hesston Public Library apron and cookbook display is bringing us so much joy. We would love to have more aprons to display. Drop them by anytime between now and May 4th. Display will run until May 12th. ...

Hesston Public Library

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.
