About the Librarian: Joy Hassell

I love books! I have been a librarian at Chickasaw for 20 years. I love my job. I received my undergraduate and my Master's Degree from University of Memphis. I have two children. Thank you for all the help and encouragement that you give your children in teaching the love of reading.  Please email me with any questions or concerns that you might have at joy.hassell@dcsms.org
