I have a switch question

In my bedroom I have a single light switch that controls the ceiling light and a wall light. Does anyone have a diagram or a how to to instead put in a double switch. The type one is above the other to make each light have a separate switch? The 2 switch I have for the box has 2 screws on one side say line+ witch if I remember from vocational school 30 years ago would that be the white?

Re: I have a switch question

In the first picture the tow screws are jumped togeather by the brass bar, this is where you connect the house hot lead. In the other picture there are two screws seperated, one provides power for the first light and the other for the second light. Witout seein what you have in the esisting box and how it is wired I can't say if you can use the double switch.
