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

Abraham Lincoln Coming to Library

Abraham Lincoln will make a birthday appearance at the Rushville Public Library on Monday, February 12th, at 4:30 PM. This program is FREE and open to all ages. 
President Lincoln was born February 12, 1809. We think it's great that he chooses to spend his 209th birthday with US! 
There's no registration to see Abraham Lincoln. Just arrive before 4:30 on February 12th. The president will address us for about 45 minutes and then you can ask him questions!
This program is made possible by a donation from Ken & Charlotte Brashaber.
