Library Media Centers

The LMC staff develops programs to help guide students to becoming discerning consumers of ideas and information. Our primary desire is to foster a love for reading in each student, with the understanding that the Bible is the central reference of all truth. In a media-driven culture, it is important to equip our students to make responsible media choices while utilizing the tremendous technology available to them as a tool for research and communication.

CCA has two LMCs, which offer a variety of grade-level appropriate resources and activities.
The Elementary LMC (K-5) is located on the second floor of the Elementary Building in Room 2050.
The Secondary LMC (6-12) is located on the third floor of the Discipleship Building in room 33004.

“As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.”
1 Peter 4:10 (KJV)
