Hinoki Library ひのき 図書館

The Hinoki Library was established in February 2012 at our former school building.

All work toward establishing the library, both at the former and current school buildings, as well as daily work to manage book loans and returns, has been carried out by parent volunteers in our school community.

The English and Japanese language library books (most of which have been donated by community members) can be checked out by Hinoki students during daily in-school hour visits to the library. Hinoki parents can also visit the library on library operating days (twice a week) to check out books as well. 



ひのき図書館は2012年2月に、旧校舎に設立されました。

当初の設立準備から貸出返却作業まで、現在の校舎に移転してからも、全て保護者のボランティアによって運営されています。

保護者のボランティアによる図書館員は毎月図書ミーティングを行い、図書のメンテナンス、各種イベントの企画などを行なっています。

寄付によって集められた英語及び日本語の蔵書は、ひのきインターナショナルの生徒たちに日々貸し出され、保護者の方々にも週2回の開館日に貸し出されています。














Additionally, the Hinoki Library also serves as a multi-purpose space, acting as a meeting area for library, school board, and PTO meetings, an area for school events, and as an after-school space in which students can study and parents can chat and relax.

Unlike many typical public schools, Hinoki provides parents a chance to interact in a unique, culturally diverse setting.

Although book loans and returns are currently managed by hand, the Library is currently working on a more automated system in order to better meet your needs.

We look forward to the patronage of our students and parents!

Please also note that we are always looking for volunteers, so please do not hesitate to talk to a library staff member if you are interested.

その他にも、図書館は理事会やPTOの会議の場所、イベント会場、生徒たちの放課後の宿題の場所、保護者の憩いの場所として多目的に利用されています。

他の公立校では見られない異文化交流が実現される場となっています。

また、ただいま手作業で行われている貸出業務をシステム化するために準備をしています。完成した際にはより便利な図書館となります。

より多くの方々のご利用をお待ちしています。

また、図書館でのボランティアに興味のある方はぜひ図書館員にお声をかけて下さい。
