"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
February is "Love Your Library Month" so the Rushville Public Library wants to know why you love your library, specifically the Rushville Public Library. Has the Rushville Public Library staff given you special or excellent service? Have you learned or done something at the library that has made a difference in your life? What makes our library so loveable? You have 500 words or less and an entire month to tell the library.
We are selling good-smelling candles and melties at the library. We have several winter flavors including Hot Apple Pie, Fireside Embers (smells like grandma's fireplace on Christmas Day), Pine Needles, Pumpkin Cornbread (mmmm), and Cinnamon Clove. Candles cost $8 each plus tax and melties cost $1.25 plus tax for a pack of two.
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!
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!
