How to Check out Resources

  • Library Resources
    First come, first serve, in-person check out.  Some resources have limited reservation usage.  Most items have a four-week check out time.  It is important that you return items borrowed from the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Emerson Resource Center so others may use the resources. 
  • Equipment Reservation
    Complete a Resource Request Form, email, FAX or snail mail completed form to Emerson Resource Center. Pick-up is from the resource center, usually two days before use and returned two days after use. Some resources can by mailed. Check with a resource specialist to see if this is possible for the equipment you desire.
