    Welcome to the Emerson Library!  Your friendly Emerson Librarian has been Ms. McGuire since 2010.  She will be happy to help you find a book and share her love of reading with you! 

    You can read below for how to access books during the 2020-2021 school year.  The link on the left (E-Book Reading Resources) has additional resources, including the International Children's Digital Library and free audiobooks through Audible.

    If you would like a personalized recommendation for which resource might be best for you, please contact your librarian at amcguire3@livoniapublicschools.org.

     

     

  • Emerson Library: Access to Books 2020-2021

     

    During Remote Learning 

    During Face-to-Face Learning

    Students can place a hold on a book through the library catalog.  Books will be available at the pickup location (school lobby) after 3:00 pm each day.  Requests need to be made by 2:30 pm for same day pick up.  There will also be a bin to return library books.  You will receive an email confirmation when a book is ready to be picked up.  Please wait for that email before coming to pick up your books.

    Students will be able to use the library catalog to place holds on books.  These will be delivered to students in their classroom.  


    Livonia Virtual students will be able to continue to request books for pickup, although the pickup location may change.  

     

    E-Books

     

    Emerson Students have access to an ebook app called Open eBooks, which is made for a K-12 audience.

     

    Thanks to the work of LPS Librarians, in collaboration with the Livonia Public Library, every LPS student can receive a public library card from their home city!  It is simple - a parent/guardian simply needs to fill out this form: Get Your Public Library Card.  If your student already has a library card, we ask that you still fill out the form so that we know which students have access to Public Library resources, such as Hoopla and Download Destination.
