Mountain Lakes High School 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. This year, students and staff will be able to borrow Kindle e-readers that were generously funded through the Mountain Lakes Education Foundation and the Boonton Twp. Education Foundation.
