Illinois Readers Choice Award

Again this school year, Emerson students will have the opportunity to participate in voting for the Illinois Reader's Choice Awards. Thanks to a generous donation from our PTA, we have 48 new nominated books for students to check out and read from our library. Many, many thanks to all of the PTA members who made this donation possible! 

 

Welcome Back Emerson Students and Families!

We are so excited to be back! It is going to be a great year in the Emerson Library. We will be reading lots of wonderful books, delivering engaging lessons and launching a new MakerSpace. We can't wait to see all the wonderful things that students create.  

2017-18 Battle of the Books 

Check out the photos below to see all of Emerson's amazing book battling teams for this school year. They all read LOTS of books and worked with their team to answer questions about them.
