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

COLOR To RELAX

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 (January through May) from 1 to 3 PM. The next Color to Relax is Wednesday, February 24. There's no registration. Just bring yourself and be ready to enjoy some relaxing coloring and refreshments! We also might have a door prize!

E-BOOKS ARE HERE!


eBooks are HERE!
Here's what you need to do:
1. Get or renew your Rushville Public Library card. Pay any fines you might owe.
2. Ask us to give you a 4-digit PIN number
3. Rev up your e-reading device (iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Android device, etc)
4. Get ready to follow the links on this website!

INTERNET/WIFI CAFE

Ever wish there was a nice place to sit and sip coffee, chat on your phone or laptop, read the newspaper or a magazine, peruse a good book? Try the RPL's new Internet/Wifi Cafe. 

We have plenty of comfy places for you to sit with your newspaper, magazine, book, laptop, iPad, whatever. And we will have the refreshments to revitalize you. Coffee, tea, cookies, granola bars. It's all here. There's a little cost (75 cents for coffee and 50 cents for cookies/granola bar), but the comfort is free.

Help Our Library Become County-wide!

UPDATE: The county commissioners meeting of October 20 was not successful for us. We really appreciate those who attended and who contacted the commissioners in support of the library. We don't know what will happen, but it is unlikely we will be granted county-wide status. Your calls, emails, and notes to the commissioners are still appreciated. Don't stop. We won't give up.

Thank you all so much!
