Reading is such an important aspect of an education. Valerie Gossett works to maintain a library that is both educational and enjoyable. Richland Springs’ library is in the top of our class as far as small school libraries, and even when compared to 2A libraries. This is a goal Mrs. Gossett has been striving for since she first began as librarian here. Mrs. Gossett is working to make the library a better place to read, AND A FUN PLACE TO READ! Pete, the therapy dog, visits the library on Tuesdays and Thursdays to read with 1st and 2nd graders. His owner Darlene Oskins and Pete the dog make reading fun for Richland Springs students!Both the junior high girls’ and boys’ basketball teams are 1-0.
