Welcome to the Rushville Public Library

"A library book...is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, is their only capital." — Thomas Jefferson


If you've been participating in our Hoosier Quest summer reading program, you and your family are invited to our cookout and carnival on Wednesday, June 29th at 6 PM! Free food, games, fun, and a special surprise for Indiana's 200th birthday! No registration - just come!
Hoosier Quest ends on July 9, but there's still time to sign up and participate. We still have plenty of prizes and fun things for readers of all ages.

Library Fund-Raiser Gala Raises $5,000

Mark Twain mingled, attendees ate and drank, and money was raised for new carpeting/flooring and paint during the Rushville Public Library's Fund-Raiser on Saturday, April 16th.
Nearly 75 people attended the event which featured microbrewery beer from the Wooden Bear, wine from Buck Creek Winery, and pulled pork sandwiches made by Gettingers Family Meats.


Join us for our brand new adult program at the Rushville Public Library that we started in January. Men and women are invited to Color to Relax each fourth Wednesday of the month from 1 to 3 PM.
