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.
