Welcome to the Thurgood Marshall Middle School Library

Our mission is to ensure that students, staff, and school community are effective, ethical users and producers of information and ideas. This involves teaching info-tech literacy skills, nurturing a love of reading, preparing students to meet state standards, and partnering with the 21st century school community to foster lifelong learning and global citizenship.
