Welcome to the Thurgood Marshall Middle School Library


The mission of the OSD Library program and its teacher-librarians is to develop the abilities of our students, staff, families, and communities to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and effective users and producers of ideas; teach digital citizenship and media literacy skills; encourage a love of reading; and advocate for a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive society.
