Fizz! Boom! Read! Richmond Free Library Summer Reading Program #vsla

Children's librarian L.J. Kopf from the Richmond Free Library visited RES today to promote RFL's Summer Reading Program: Fizz! Boom! Read! 

This fabulous FREE program provides reading records, prizes, activities, and an end of summer party to encourage children to read and maintain their literacy skills over the summer. All students received a gold information sheet to take home that explains more about the program.

The Richmond Free Library is located at 201 Bridge Street in downtown Richmond. Please visit their website for more information about their hours and services. Happy summer reading!

Summer Library Books #vsla #tlchat

Once again this summer the RES library will be holding summer book checkouts! Scholars in kindergarten and grades one, two, and three will be able to check out up to 10 books from the school library and take them home for the summer. Starting on Tuesday, June 10, scholars will be bringing home “Carry Out a Good Book” bags with their summer library books. Each scholar will also get a note explaining the program and a list of books he or she has checked out for the summer. The books will be due back when school starts in the fall. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our school librarian, Mrs. Redford, at 434-2461 or

Thank you RES Library Volunteers #resvt #cesuvt

A heartfelt thank you from RES to all our volunteers and guest teachers!

RES library volunteers donate over 20 hours a week of their time helping students find books, checking out materials, setting up displays, and reshelving the hundreds of books our students and teachers read and return every week. They also put in many extra hours at the beginning of every school year when students return several thousand summer library books. Many thanks to these dedicated people who keep the library welcoming, attractive, and organized for our students:
