Someone is planning ahead! A patron at another library just requested to borrow this from us via interlibrary loan. 🥶 ⛄️❄️ #whyistherenoiglooemoji ...

We are open on Monday (Columbus Day), but closed on Tuesday, October 15th for our annual staff development training. Sorry for any inconvenience this will cause, but we look forward to bring new ideas to the library from our training. ...

If you'd like to increase your knowledge (or if your 4-year-old has been bugging you for dinosaur books), we can help. #FridayFunnies ...

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:

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.
