Extraordinary Women's Museum

This week, in honor of International Women's Day, the Emerson Library is hosting our Emerson Extraordinary Women's Museum. Fifty students contributed posters and exhibits about women that they consider extraordinary, from their grandmothers to Bessie Coleman. During their library time this week, each class has the opportunity to appreciate the exhibits.

We hope you'll have time to drop by as well! The museum will be up in the library all week, open to families from before school until Kids' World closes at 6:00. But in case you can't make it, or if you want to relive the museum at home, check out the slideshow below. Congratulations to all students for their great work!



Feel free to leave impressions (and compliments) in the comments!

Thanks for posting these, Ms. Claire! We weren't able to come in to the library this week, but we enjoyed the on-line exhibit. Congratulations to the kids for all their great work!

To Alice, I liked your report because I am reading the Harry Potter books and I hope they turn out happily. From Sylvia

I, too, appreciate your write up and the slideshow of the Women's Museum exhibit, since I wasn't able to get over to Emerson this week.

I thought the exhibits and blog photos were cool. It was fun doing my report on my mom.

i liked Alice's because i also read the harry potter series and enjoyed them a lot, so i can see why somebody would be inspired by JK rowling.
