Welcome to the newly refurbished Lion Library, so named because its first collection came from North Sydney Technical High School which had a lion as its school emblem. Killara High School’s Lion Library caters for our students and staff for 21st century learning. The library features collaborative learning spaces, study spaces, a dedicated study area for our senior students, flexible shelving and furniture, and the very popular charging facilities.
New laptops have been purchased for class use, and new technologies continue to be installed. Projectors accompanied by remote controlled screens and a TV panel now cater for larger audiences. The Lion Library offers programs, holds events, manages activities and encourages student leadership in our Technology Library Teams project, all of which develop 21st century skills in our students. We look forward to your visit.
