The school received 25 laptops in addition to the renovations, funded by retail giant Burlington. CENTRAL HARLEM — Thurgood Marshall Academy senior Danielle Mosley said it was always a challenge for her and her classmates to use the school’s library. Some of the bookshelves were too tall, making texts unreachable, and the technology was outdated. “We always struggled having four computers,” she said. School principal Sean Davenport agreed. “It looked like a library, but an elementary school library,” he said of the school at 214 W. 135th St., which serves sixth- through 12-graders.
