The Rushville Public Library welcomes monetary donations for the purpose of remembering loved ones and friends who have passed away, for the
celebration of a birthday or anniversary, or for the recognition of a deed
Memorial gifts to the library are wonderful because they insure a lasting memorial to a loved one or friend. Once the library receives the gift, a note is sent to the person being remembered or the next of kin. If the gift is more than fifteen dollars, a book(s) is purchased and a special plate stating the name of the donor and in whose memory it was given is placed inside. If the gift is less than fifteen dollars, it is placed in a general memorial fund and used to purchase books for the library.
Many kind folks have given memorial gifts and requested that videos, puppets or other library materials be purchased. Some donors have requested that gifts be used for programming such as the summer reading club or the young adult monthly events.
Lately, donors have been requesting that gifts be used to help improve the library facility. To learn more about giving memorial donations to the Rushville Public Library, please call 932-3496, or ask at the front desk.
Memorial contributions may be mailed to: Rushville Public Library Memorials, 130 W. Third St., Rushville, IN 46173.
