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


Mark your calendars for August 21, 22, & 23. That's when our library will have a huge Books-by-the-Bag Sale! It's very simple, we provide the bag, you load it up, and give us $1 (you can even give more and we won't think less of you). That's right, just a $1 for a bag of booksale books. We also have some movies and other fun items in our sale. Stuff 'em in a bag and give us a buck! A GREAT deal!

That's Thursday, August 21 (8:30 AM to 6:30 PM), Friday, August 22 (8:30 AM to 5 PM), and Saturday, August 23 (9 AM to 3 PM).

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

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!

Toddler and Preschool Storytimes

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 the week of September 8. Take your pick of 10 AM on Tuesday or 10 AM or 11 AM on Thursday for Toddler Storytime. Preschool Storytime meets only at 10 AM on Thursday.

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.
