Our Librarian

Mr. Keniston has been the librarian at Franklin County Tech since 2019. Under his direction, our library is a welcoming, comfortable, and engaging space.  The print and online collections respond to the academic and recreational reading needs of our students and faculty.  He was a member of the Massachusetts Teen Choice Book Awards selection committee and has been a long-term member of the ALA, AASL, MLA, MSLA, and NHSLMA.
Prior to joining us, Wally was an English teacher in Nicaragua, Library assistant and Director at middle and high schools in New Hampshire and elsewhere in Massachusetts since 2001.  Other experiences include being a website developer, documentary videographer, audio-visual director for a school district, as well as being DJ, News Director, and Interim General Manager at three radio stations.
Wally owns and operates a used bookstore in his hometown of Wolfeboro, N.H. that he started in 1978.  He is a three-season swimmer in Lake Winnipesaukee, has traveled to five continents (two more to go!), enjoys hiking with his dog "Austin," and having long conversations in Spanish.
