We are so honored to be invited to participate in the Hesston High school career fair. Recruiting future librarians! ...

We admit it; we love statistics about the library. ...

Save the Date for Hesston Public Library's Adult Lecture Series. Monday nights February 22nd-March16th. We have not finalized all the plans yet, but will release flyers as time gets closer. ...

Story time friends:
No regular story time today due to USD 460 late start. Join us at 10:30 for playtime! Snacks for littles and coffee for moms provided!
...

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.
