Welcome to the Richmond Library
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 the Oregon School Library Standards which can be found at: https://sites.google.com/site/oregonschoollibrarystandards/

Late and Lost Books
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 come talk to her in the Richmond Library on Mondays or Fridays. You can reply directly to your library fine email, and Michelle will read it and respond. You can also pay for lost books in your School Pay account.
What is Richmond Reads?
Richmond Reads books include the third through fifth grade titles selected for the Oregon Battle of the Books plus a list of recent titles aimed at kindergarten through second grade readers. Readers should not feel limited by these categories and should choose the books that fit their interests and abilities. Richmond families, staff, and students are encouraged to read at least one Richmond Reads book, and some will enjoy the challenge of reading them all! Check out the Richmond Reads Booklist!
The library Suggestion Box is full of titles our students would like to read and your donation will make it possible to purchase them!
Richmond Readsの書籍には、Oregon Battle of the Booksに選定された3年生から5年生向けの本や、幼稚園生から2年生向けの本の一覧が含まれています。ですが、これらのカテゴリーにこだわらず、自分に合った本を選んでくださいね。リッチモンド小学校の先生、生徒、家族のみなさんに、少なくともRichmond Readsから1冊、是非、読んで頂きたいと思います。中には、全部読もうとチャレンジされる方もいらっしゃることでしょう！
