"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
Holiday season is here and we hope our library patrons do not forget the Rushville Public Library while they are out shopping or looking for awesome gifts for friends & relatives.
In order to raise money for our library building, we are selling good-smelling candles and melties. We have several autumn/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!
We have some great news - candles are back and they smell delicious!
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!
