It’s National Library Week

RUSHVILLE —

As you do your spring cleaning, keep an eye out for a stray library book reposing under a bed or a puppet skulking in a closet or maybe a video unseen amongst your own collection. If you find any of these items, you’re in luck! As part of National Library Week, Rushville Public Library is granting amnesty this week with Free Fine Week. “This means that people can bring back overdue items and there is no fine levied. As usual, this doesn't pertain to already existing fines,” Sue Otte, library director, said. “So people need to look under their beds and in closets, etc., and find those overdue library items and bring them back.” She explained that already existing fines are those that are already on the library user’s account. “You may have an overdue item, but the actual monetary amount isn't on your account until you bring it back,” she said. Another feature of this special week is reduced county card fees. Since the library is a city facility, residents not living within city limits must pay a fee for their library cards. During this week they can save money by signing up for a card at a lower fee. The usual Toddler and Preschool story times will be observed today (Thursday). New this year is a donation from Hubler Auto Center in Rushville. “Hubler is doing something special for us during April,” Otte explained. “For every car, new or used, that they sell, they are giving $100 to the library improvement fund.” Patrons may give their own donations by visiting the Giving Tree near the reception desk and selecting an item listed on a leaf of the tree. Seed packets also are still available to help “grow” the library. The 100 Days of Giving will continue until the big 100th anniversary celebration June 13.
