Our middle and high school library provides a space for research, independent study and quiet group work. Students can check out Chromebooks, purchase a hot beverage and enjoy research or writing support from Mrs. Julianne Ross, or other faculty. Mrs. Ross plans themes and activities throughout the year to promote reading, including a DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) week, reading challenges with prizes and more.

The EMS library strives to be a 21st Century learning environment where members of our school community are encouraged to be effective users of ideas and information by asking questions, reading enthusiastically, thinking critically, and demonstrating creativity.
