About the Media Center

Lawton students visit the Media Center at least once a week to learn media skills and choose resources for checkout. Students learn how to find, organize, and present information through traditional and technology-related resources. Many students enjoy additional time in the Media Center when they are working on class assignments that involve research and reading.

Students may check out items each week for leisure reading. There is unlimited checkout for resources needed to complete class assignments. Students may return their checked-out items at any time.

Select the following grade levels for more information:
