Mission

The mission of the Lewis Greenview Library Media Program is to help faculty, staff, and students become effective users of ideas, information, and technology, encourage a love of reading with all users, support the curriculum, meet the information needs of the school community, and prepare students to be successful in the 21st Century.

Media Center Schedule

Library hours are from 7:15-2:45 on school days. Every class is scheduled to visit the media center on a weekly basis. However, students with a pass may visit the library throughout the day, for checkout.


The media center does have some flex hours, especially at the beginning of the week. During this time, teachers may bring their students to the LCM to use the computers for educational purposes. Please contact Ms. Willis-Richards for more information.
