Welcome to the UCCS Library Media Center!
The LMC is a place of learning and fun. Students are encouraged to explore the world around them through reading, research, and investigation. Lessons focus on information problem solving skills and literature appreciation and are designed to extend upon and enrich the classroom curriculum.
We are always in need of volunteers to assist in the LMC. If you would be interested in helping, please contact Miriam Steinberg at 288-5702 ext. 254.
