"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
In August, the library board petitioned the Rush Co Commissioners asking them to act on making our library a county-wide library. This would mean that the library would be funded from property taxes from the entire county, not just the city of Rushville. It would also mean there would be no more non-resident fee for folks who live outside the city limits.
We have some great news - candles are back and they smell delicious!
The Library is pleased to present an exciting program designed to introduce preschoolers to books and reading. It is called "1000 Books Before Kindergarten".
Any child from newborn up to entering Kindergarten may participate. The goal is to read 1000 books to your child before he/she enters Kindergarten. Along the way your child earns little prizes, and a keepsake book once 1000 books are read!
