Emerson Library


We’re cookin’ up good books in the LMC!


Welcome to the Emerson Library. The library is a place to read, learn and expand horizons.

The mission of the library program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.

We provide flexible scheduling for our students and staff. Students may come to the library individually, in small groups or with an entire class to use the space and the resources available.

Growing Readers

The 14 library teachers of the School District of La Crosse worked together to create the district-wide Growing Readers initiative in 14 buildings for 6000 students and 1000 staff. Over the course of the school year, we focused on three facets of librarianship: advocacy for reading, finding the right books for students, and creating a culture of reading where students can progress as readers. This grassroots project was designed not only to advocate for our libraries but also to create lifelong learners, readers, and library users among all of our students and staff.

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
