Our Mission

Empower effective users of information and ideas
Provide relevant services, programs, and materials
Enrich, support, and complement the community
Promote a lifelong love of reading


We love kids!  Here at the library we provide Storytime for children from birth to kindergarten.  Hear a story, do a craft, have a snack!  We have a Summer Library Program for grades K-12, which encourages kids to read throughout the summer and narrows the gap from one school year to the next.  We provide after school programming such as KnitWits, and Let's Try It!. We offer early release activities when children are out of school early, as well as special programming throughout the year.  Give us a call, take a peek at our Calendar of Events or "like" us on Facebook to always be in the know about what's going on this month at the library.

Young Adults

Is your teen or tween always looking for something to do?  We have regularly scheduled programming for young adults in grades 6-12!  From duct tape crafts and Xbox tournaments to murder mystery parties and board game nights. Our young adult group is very active at the library and always looking for a good time!  Stop by the library and sign up for any of our upcoming events at the circulation desk.


Whether it be informational or recreational, the Russell Public Library strives to meet the needs of our patrons of all ages.  Each month we offer Classic Movie Night for adults only.  Popcorn and pop is provided and everything is free of charge.   Additional programming is scheduled throughout the year, so make sure to visit our website regularly to stay on top of what's up at the RPL!
