National Library Week starts Monday

RUSHVILLE — April always brings National Library Week and the Rushville Public Library has planned a week of celebration for all ages starting Monday.

The library invites folks to stop in and renew their library cards or get a library card if they donÕt already have one.

Library cards are free to those residing within the Rushville city limits. However, the library is supported by city property taxes only, so those who reside outside the city limits (or who do not own real property within the city limits) must, according to Indiana State Law, pay a fee for a card.

Luckily, during National Library Week RPL is making it easier for county folks to get library cards. Be sure to ask about special deals for all ages.

Once folks have a library card, there are many things to do.

Rushville Public Library has about 35,000 books just waiting to be read!

In addition, the library holds hundreds of VHS and DVD movies and a case full of music CDs for every taste.

For patrons who prefer to listen to a story, the library has hundreds of books on CD as well. And for children, we have adorable puppets wishing to be checked out. The library also has dozens of magazines for all ages.

Rushville Public Library has eight public computers with Internet access. These computers are free to use by anyone. Half of these computers are brand new including two purchased with money just received from a Rush County Community Foundation grant.

Girl Scout Troop #20679 will host a special after-school program from 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesday. Boys and girls in elementary school are invited to a library scavenger hunt! The Girl Scouts will have prizes for the winners and refreshments will be provided.

As usual, National Library Week will also be a ÒFine Free PeriodÓ at the library. Patrons are asked to bring back all overdue materials. No fines will be levied. Fine Free Period does not pertain to already existing fines on a patronÕs record. However, this is a great time to look under beds and in closets for those library items long forgotten.
