The Louisa County Middle School Library is an innovative library model students dream about!

It’s the combination of a traditional library space and an innovation lab. 70% of the LCMS Library operates as a traditional library space. It features peaceful reading areas, flexible seating options, and areas for discussions.

The LCMS Library boasts a catalogue of 25,013 books. The library has already had 26,851 checkouts this school year, with four months still to go! The remaining 30% of the LCMS Library is a full-scale innovation lab called “Creation Station,” which is a state-of-the-art classroom featuring all of the latest tech tools and gadgets. In Creation Station, students have access to 3D printers, laser Cutters, 3D modeling computers, a music composition room, and green screens! Creation Station encourages students to learn through hands-on experience. Creation Station teaches students to problem-solve and to work together.

Creation Station made its debut for the 2019-2020 school year and has significantly boosted academic traffic to the LCMS Library. This year, the LCMS Library is on track to handle 1,440 class visits, up from 720 the year before! Additionally, 67% of teachers have held at least one lesson in Creation Station. The staff has worked diligently to ensure that the LCMS Library and Creation Station are highly accessible to both students and teachers.

The LCMS Library’s mission is simple: to help students develop a love of reading and the desire to dream big! The Louisa County Middle School Library is a place where students can develop The 5 C’s: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking, and Citizenship.
