August 2023

    Dear Students and Families,   

    It's hard to believe we are gearing up for the 2023 - 2024 school year!  I hope our Townsend families have had a wonderful summer!  I am excited to welcome back our 8th grade students and getting to know our newest Townsend Rangers in the 7th grade! 
    The library will be open daily from 8:30am - 3:45pm. The first week or so, I will only be open for students who need to pick up their textbooks and Chromebooks. After that, students can come in to check out books, work on homework and/or print out assignments with the computer lab. 
    It is important to remember that library books have a 2 week check-out period.  They must be returned or renewed after 2 weeks to avoid late fees. Check the inside cover where the due date is stamped to always be sure you are on time.  
    I am a big believer in the role reading plays in overall academic success. Please talk to me about what I have on our library shelves that might interest you! Learn to love reading now and you will see a positive difference in your academic career. 
    Feel free to send an email with any questions you may have.  I am here to help!
    All the best, 

    Mrs. Murray
