Emerson Resource Center

Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Emerson Resource Center is specifically designed to assist the busy Girl Scout leader, administrative volunteer and staff in planning and carrying out troop/group activities.

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.
