Lithophane Workshop

Lithophane Workshop
May 28th 2-5 pm

Display your photos with light! A Lithophane is a photo that is printed on a 3D printer and is only really visible when light shines through it. Just bring in a few photos that you like. Photos can be either printed or digital.

There is no cost to attend this workshop and space is limited. To register, fill out the form through this link or come by the Makerpsace. We will attempt to complete projects within 3 hours. If we are unable to, you can visit the Makerspace at another time to finish your design.

If you have questions, you can reach us at or 620-663-5441 ext. 133

Book Discussion Groups

TALK Book Discussion

TALK Book Discussions
March – June
6:30 to 8:00 pm
Second Thursday of the Month
Hutchinson Public Library Auditorium

There are three ways to register: reserve a copy to pick up (link below), come to the library, or email Natasha Russell at

THE MARCH is available for checkout now at the Public Services Desk. Each subsequent book will be available a month ahead of its discussion. Books are expected to be returned the same evening they are discussed.

If you haven’t read the book and are curious about the discussion, we encourage you to come and listen!

The Series
Hutchinson Public Library will offer a four-part, monthly book discussion series starting the second Thursday in March, thematically exploring “The Civil War.”

About Humanities Kansas
The stories of all Kansans depend on people willing to listen to one another — to engage in difficult conversations about our past, the complexities we face today, and the future we can create together. Democracy demands wisdom and vision from its citizens and only the humanities provide a way to gain both.

Together with our partners and supporters, we inspire all Kansans to draw on history, literature, ethics, and culture to enrich their lives and serve the communities and state we all proudly call home. For more information about HK, visit

Mystery Mavens

The Mystery Mavens Book Discussion Group meets at the library on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm in the Auditorium.  Meetings are informal and usually last about one hour.  There is no cost to attend and the Library provides the book.  For more information please contact Steven Westfahl at or at 620-663-5441 x 139.
