Media Center

Daily Hours: 7:15 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.


Types of Materials include fiction, non-fiction, biographies, reference, Truman Readers Award and Edgy books. Students may place purchase requests in the suggestion basket in the Media Center.


Check outs: We encourage students to check out two free reading books at a time, but may have three with parents' permission.

Edgy books: In order to meet the needs of all students, Lakeview Middle School has a limited selection of books that are at a higher reading level. (high school) Books that are more challenging to read sometimes have content or language that is more mature, so these books are only available to students who have a signed permission form.

Edgy Books Form

Due dates: Books can be checked out for two weeks and may be renewed once.

Overdue Items: If students have overdue books, parents will be called and students will have to pay for missing materials. 


Lesson Collaboration: The Media Specialist assists teachers with lesson plans by suggesting relevant materials and also collaborates and co-teaches on lessons in different curricular areas.

Reserves/Holds: Teachers can reserve items from other buildings. Students can only place holds/reserves on titles which are available in the Lakeview Media Center. 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Lakeview Middle School Media Center is to inspire an enthusiasm and love for reading, to equip students to become skilled users of information tools, to develop life-long learners, and to integrate technology into the school curriculum through collaboration.
