Hesston Public Library is fishing for more patrons as they expand their collection of items for check-out.
Director Libby Albers said the Library has recently added 10 fishing poles, complete with supplied tackle, and several pairs of binoculars to the collection of items cardholders can borrow.
Albers said she is pleased to expand the Library’s offerings.
“Libraries aren’t just books. We have items people can check out. And, with three big Harvey County parks, having outdoor gear available without having to pay for it is good for our community,” she said.
Albers said Hesston is fortunate to have additional items for patrons to borrow.
“There are only two other area libraries that offer these kinds of rentals – El Dorado and Abilene,” she said.
Albers said the binoculars would be coming into circulation soon as part of a new programming opportunity.
“In March we are starting ‘Bird Brains’ as an after-school activity for youth. The binoculars were purchased for that program,” she said.
