Summer events at the RPL

The Rushville Public Library’s summer discovery program, A Universe of Stories, is in its third week already, but it’s not too late to join. Anyone with a Rushville Public Library card may join no matter how young or old. Presently, the youngest participant is less than a year old and the oldest is more than 80.

The library’s special events, which are in conjunction with the summer discovery program, are under way as well. In June the library will present story times for infants and preschoolers and crafts for grade school children. Teens will enjoy a Friday night Galaxy Game with drinks and pizza. The library will even be taking the programming on the road to Mays, Milroy and Arlington.

Library staff will be at Mays Academy at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11, to play Universe Trek, a board game with spaces on the floor. Players are the game tokens and move spaces according to a dice roll. The first player to the end (space station) wins. The game will be repeated at Milroy (Anderson Fire Department) at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12, and also at Arlington (Posey Fire Department) at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 13. The Universe Trek game program is free to the public and all ages are sure to enjoy it. Light refreshments will be served, too.
