Welcome to the Lakewood Library Media Center
Welcome to the Lakewood School Library! Located in a large, sunny, central room, the library is staffed three days a week by a certified teacher/librarian. Students come to the library once a week for Information Literacy and Technology (ILT) classes that integrate literature, information literacy, and technology. They have access to a collection of over 11,00 books and a cart of laptop computers which 
we use to think, create, share and grow.
