Welcome to the Innovation Learning Center (ILC) at Niu Valley Middle School.

The ILC supports NVMS students and teachers with flexible seating and state-of-the-art digital tools to allow school-related ideas and projects to soar.

Teachers use the ILC as an extension of the classroom, either bringing their entire class or sending individuals or small groups of students to create tangible or digital products. Movable furniture and large screen monitors accommodate groups of up to 50 (table-seating) or up to 75 (floor-seating).

The ILC also offers traditional library resources, including books, graphic novels, and online articles and videos. Curl up on a sofa to read a good book. Use one of the Mac computers or Google Chromebooks to complete and print assignments. Find a quiet place to work before, during or after class.



ATTENTION:  Due to Covid 19, the ILC is available ONLY for active browsing or borrowing of books.

There is a 4 book limit for a 2 week borrowing period.  Books may be renewed if an extension is needed.



The ILC will be open only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays before school from 7:30 – 8:00, and Morning and Lunch Recesses.

The ILC will be open daily for returning of books or for computer/printing needs.



  1. Sanitize hands immediately upon entering.
  2. Active browsing or borrowing of books only – no “hanging out.”
  3. Please whisper.
  4. No eating, drinking, or gum chewing.


3D printing is the process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file.  Do you want to learn more about 3D printing or do you have an object to print for one of your classes?  Visit the ILC or complete this quick online form. (Use your NVMS email account.)

Priority is given to class-related projects that are of an original design and that can fit in the palm of your hand.
