"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
Join us at Rushville's Riverside Amphitheater this Saturday, July 25, as we raise funds for our library building. The music starts at 7 pm, but we will be there long before that selling candy bars, glow necklaces, and selling 50/50 raffle tickets. Donations of any kind are encouraged! All the money raised Saturday night will help fund our improvements to the Rushville Public Library facilities.
The main concert is a Garth Brooks tribute, so everyone should enjoy the music. But as you sit and listen, please don't forget the Rushville Public Library.
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!
