Hoosier Quest Summer Reading Program is open to all Rush County readers. We will have a fun summer of reading and learning about the Hoosier state. We will celebrate with special programs and reading incentives to commemorate Indiana’s 200 years. We will decorate the library with Indiana history and displays so that readers can go on a virtual tour of our state. Special events such as a birthday party open house will highlight the summer.
