    Our mission is to ensure that Olde Towne Middle School students can be both users and producers of ideas and information.  We will strive to:  provide support for using technology in day-to-day learning; advocate for lifelong learning and reading for pleasure; encourage students and parents to use the public library system; and provide equitable access to information, resources and services.


    We have a large collection of fiction and nonfiction for all levels of readers.We also have computers for research and printing. We are open in the mornings before school and in the afternoons until 3:30. If you are looking for a book recommendation or help with a research paper, the library is the place to go. We love helping OTMS students and teachers.

    About the librarian, Mrs. McGraw!
     
    This is my first year as Olde Towne Middle School's Media Specialist (Librarian) and I am so excited!  I love being in the school and educational environment and I really love being around BOOKS! I have a strong technical background with a BS in Computing and Information Systems from Mississippi College.  I was a technician in this District's Technology Department for nine years and a STEM teacher at OTMS for four years.  I was a student librarian assistant for Mrs. Drake when I was a student at Peeples Junior High School and I have loved the library ever since.  My e-mail address is smcgraw@madison-schools.com.
