The Richmond Elementary Library program strives to foster a love of reading and to develop information technology skills in students. We help students become critical thinkers by exploring a variety of both English and Japanese literary materials in a safe, encouraging environment. We are an open and engaging space for students, teachers and families. The library program adheres to theOregon School Library Standards.
We do not charge fines for overdue books in the Richmond Library; however, overdue books eventually become "lost books". Partrons are charged a fine of full purchase price of each lost book. Some students have unresolved fines from previous years.
What should you do if you have fines for lost books? Simply return the lost books to the Richmond Library, and the fine will be cleared from the patron's account when it is checked in. If you have truly lost or damaged a book, or have questions, email Library Assistant Michelle George or visit her in the Richmond Library on Mondays/Fridays. You may reply directly to your library fine email, and Michelle will read it and respond. You may also pay for lost books in your School Pay account.
The library Suggestion Box is full of titles our students would like to read, and your donation will make it possible to purchase them!
