• Welcome to the Richmond Library


    Richmond Library - where students and staff find engaging books in English and Japanese. It's a place for asking questions and figuring out how to find reliable answers.   We'll be talking a lot about where information comes from. 


    Why should I believe it?

    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!

    Richmond Reads

    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!


    The library Suggestion Box is full of titles our students would like to read and your donation will make it possible to purchase them!
