Hesston Public Library will be celebrating its 75th anniversary as a fixture in the Hesston community this Saturday with an all-day family-fun event.
Cari Cusick, event coordinator, said the celebration is a way to get residents of all ages engaged with the library.
“Basically, we want to celebrate our anniversary and we felt like the best way to do that was to have a fun, family-oriented event, something people of all ages could be a part of,” she said.
Cusick said the event will not be a formal celebration, but a time to just have fun.
“It will be a low-key event. We are taking a similar concept as the Dr. Seuss Family Fun Night – since we weren’t able ot have that back in March – and have some of the games and activities,” she said.
In addition to family fun, there will be food for all.
“We are adding the Hot Dog Feed and the Lions Club is doing the grilling for us,” she said.
For kids wanting to burn off a little extra energy, an inflatable play rig will be part of the festivities.
“We have a bouncy house rented and we are going to have a place that encourages people to sign up for library cards if they don’t already have one,” he said.
For those with more mature interests, included in the festivities will be a history of Hesston Public Library.
