Hometown Heroes – Tuesdays at 6:00

Every Hero Burst copySuperheroes don’t just wear capes… You probably see them around town every day.  Each Tuesday in the month of June we will introduce you to a new hero!  We’ll do different activities with each hero – from boot camp to demonstrations and have a lot of fun.

This event will be held outdoors if the weather is right (and indoors if not), so bring your lawn chairs and blankets.  No registration is required for this free program at the library.

It will be fun for the whole family!

Recipe Swap – Kansas Cookbook

Ask for the book at the circulation desk, take a few minutes to peruse the book and choose a recipe. We’ll make a copy of the recipe and mark down that you’ve chosen it. The book cannot be checked out. Then we’ll share the recipes and see which one is your favorite.

Library Look-up Tablet Station

Library Look-up Tablet

The library now has a Look-up tablet installed in the kid's area that can be used to search the catalog, book meeting room events, or to sign up for Summer Reading.

You can do voice searches of the catalog with the tablet, so even kids who don't quite know how to spell what they're looking for can search the catalog.
