Welcome to the MLHS Media Center


The new media center was officially opened for the start of the 2006-2007 school year. Students and staff alike appreciate the spacious well appointed center. It has state of the art technology as well as an extensive print collection of over 24,000 volumes. In the past five years we have expanded our subscription database and e-book collection for our students and staff. Students and staff can borrow Kindle e-readers that were generously funded through the Mountain Lakes Education Foundation and the Boonton Twp. Education Foundation.

The media center is also home to the Mountain Lakes Online Academy, which presents students with an opportunity to study areas of interest outside of the school curriculum. 
Students are able to complete the courses as their schedules permit.
