"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
The Rushville Public Library is excited to offer the public an opportunity to purchase books and gifts for the upcoming holidays during its Holiday Book Fair. The library will hold the Holiday Book Fair from November 18 through the end of November.
Visit the library’s Holiday Book Fair to purchase some awesome Christmas presents such as books, educational activities, and plush toys. Children, teen & adult books will be included in the booty of items offered in the book fair. Delivery will be around mid-December, just in time for Christmas!
The Library is pleased to present an exciting new program designed to introduce preschoolers to books and reading. It is called "1000 Books Before Kindergarten". We will be kicking this program off on September 9!
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!
Miss Pam and Miss Jan urge you to register your preschool child TODAY for either Toddler Storytime (for infants aged 0 to 3 1/2) or Preschool Storytime (for children aged 3 1/2 to 5).
Storytimes begin Thursday, September 12. Take your pick of 10 AM or 11 AM for Toddler Storytime. Preschool Storytime meets only at 10 AM.
Toddler & Preschool Storytimes are open to any little boy or girl. The programs last from 30-45 minutes and consist of stories, songs, fingerplays, crafts, and treats.
Our "It's Overdue, Renew" campaign has been underway for more than six months now. Little by little we are raising funds to expand and improve the library, but we still need LOTS of help.
We are selling candles at the lowest price ever! These 12 oz jars of waxy delight are going for just $4 each (plus tax). We have about 12 jars left to sell.
