OMS congratulates its client, Rushville Public Library, for the $15,000 planning grant it recently received.  Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann awarded this grant to the City of Rushville for a public library feasibility study through the state’s Office of Community and Rural Affairs.

OMS has a long history with the Rushville Public Library.  In 1928 the library’s board selected McGuire & Shook (now OMS) as the architect to build its library and has contributed to numerous renovations to the neo-Gothic facility over the past 80 years.  To learn more about the building’s rich history visit the Rushville Public Library’s website.

Rushville Public Library Planning Grant Rushville Public Library

The planning grant brings new hope for the Rushville Public Library building’s future.  The Rushville Heritage (local affiliate preservation group) recently contributed $2,500 to the project, and The Eastern Regional Office of Indiana Landmarks had a hand in supporting the planning grant application.  Mayor of Rushville, Michael P. Pavey, is also on board for expanding the library as a catalyst to re-inventing the downtown.  OMS looks forward to working with the Rushville Public Library and all of its supporters to make the expansion a reality.
