Emerson Elementary Wish List

Library Maven Jennifer Vetter

Emerson Elementary School is a public school in the Temescal District of north Oakland, just two blocks west of Oakland Technical High School. About 78% of our students are eligible for Free and Reduced Lunch. We also have many English Language Learners among our students. Home languages include Spanish (50 students), Arabic (16), Tigrinya (6), Vietnamese (5), Cantonese (4), and 7 other languages: Punjabi, Pashto, Japanese, Korean, Tagalog/Filipino, Amharic, and Somali. 

Our library is a wonderful, well-lit space, and we have a nice collection of books, but many of them are outdated. We really need new and diverse books, books that will get kids excited about reading. I’m so glad and grateful that Laurel Bookstore is helping us by setting up this wish list for us. Thank you for your support!

 

Put a book (or 6) on your cart and in the comments section at checkout put Emerson Elementary and choose store pick up. We will make sure the books get to the school.

As of October 16, 2017, all of the books on the first wish lists have been donated, THANK YOU!, so here is the new wish list:
