Rushville Public Library Joins Fayette County Public Library in agreement

RUSHVILLE — The Rushville Public Library and the Fayette County Public Library have entered into a reciprocal borrowing agreement. The agreement took effect in mid-October.

Rushville library director Sue Otte and Fayette County director Ann Hoehn drew up the reciprocal borrowing agreement in September. The purpose is to further promote easy access to library materials for cardholders of the two public libraries. With this agreement, patrons from each library will be able to get a free library card at the other library. Anyone without a library card must procure one before taking advantage of this agreement.

At the Rushville Public Library, folks who reside or who own real property within the city limits may have a free library card. Due to State Law, those who reside outside the city limits or own no real property within the city limits must pay a fee for a library card. Many Rush County township trustees pay part of this fee.

To qualify for a reciprocal library card, the applicant must be Òin good standingÓ with his or her current library. This means patrons should not have outstanding fines or overdue items. Patrons of the Fayette County Public Library may bring their library card and a current photo ID to the Rushville Public Library in order to get a new RPL card, or vice versa!

Items borrowed must be returned to the library from which they were borrowed. Rushville Public Library items should not be returned to the Fayette County Public Library, or vice versa.

Director Sue Otte and the library staff are excited to begin this borrowing partnership between the two libraries and hope that patrons of both libraries take advantage of this valuable opportunity.

In addition, the Rushville Public Library has signed a reciprocal borrowing agreement on a state level. This state-wide agreement is a covenant between the Rushville Public Library and dozens of other Indiana libraries including Shelby County, Cambridge City, Knightstown and New Castle.
