Welcome Back, Murphers!

Welcome to the Marie Murphy ITC!

It’s been a great, but busy first day back and we are so happy to have the halls bustling with students once again. Many of you have asked, and I wanted to let you know, that the ITC will be open for book check out and Reading Counts next week. This week I will be working on getting the books ready and helping to distribute laptops. I cannot wait to hear about what you’ve read this summer!
