    Welcome to the Emerson Library.

    The Mission of the Emerson Library is to foster a love of reading, to empower scholars to be effective users and producers of digital and print information, and to provide a welcoming, exciting and useful space for learning. Come visit us on Emerson's third floor!

    It's time again for the Seattle Public Library's Global Reading Challenge, a Battle of the Books program for 4th and 5th graders enrolled in Seattle Public Schools. The program encourages children to have fun and enjoy reading. After reading 10 books, children take part in a "Quiz Bowl" game to determine the winner for the city of Seattle. Learn more about the Global Reading Challenge and get a preview of this year's books on the Seattle Public Library's website.

    This year, all 4th & 5th grade Emerson students are reading the challenge books, and will be able to participate in the school competition on February 8th. Our winning team will compete at the Central Library in a semi-final match with several other Seattle public schools, and may go all the way to the city finals in March.
