Library & Technology
A new library for a new generation
The Library Technology Center (LTC) is the information hub for the Kenilworth School District. We are also the facilitators of all District digital information subscriptions that provide our students and families access to millions of online materials and interactive learning opportunities. These resources can be accessed from both school and home.
The LTC faculty and staff act as a team to develop and expand the program as the needs of our students change. The goals are to prepare our students for the challenges of the 21st century by generating motivation for learning, creative problem solving and independent inquiry, foster critical readers and become helpful, understanding individuals… the skills of a lifetime!
If you would like more detailed information about the library/technology program, please stop by or give us a call. We also offer our services as a resource for all literacies and technological selections.
