    THE LIBRARY

    • Ardmore School's Learning Resource Center is a library and computer lab. LRC materials  include books, reference materials, and computers.
    • Each week the students have an opportunity to check out new books if the previous week's book has been returned to the LRC.   We help students select books that are interesting to them and are at their independent reading level.  Throughout the year, we increase our nonfiction, fiction, and reference materials based on the needs and requests of our students and teachers. The LRC continues to grow and expand.

    We have many new books in the LRC.  Check them out!

    THE COMPUTER LAB

    • Our LRC has 39 computers. All students have regularly scheduled times to work in the computer lab each week.  Kindergarten through grade five comes to the lab a minimum of once a week.
    • LRC computer programs are aligned with the curriculum and  meet the needs, abilities, and interests of students at each grade level. This allows students to learn technological skills and  reinforces concepts being taught in the classrooms. Students use teacher approved Internet sites to research subjects.
    • At each grade level, students are taught the basic technology skills that should be mastered at that grade including typing skills. These technology competencies have been established by the District 45 Technology Committee.  In District 45, technology is used as a tool to enrich the teaching and learning in all curricular areas.
