​Learning Commons at the CBE

Today’s learners cannot imagine life without the internet and supporting technology. The concept of the traditional library is changing to include technology, online tools and spaces for collaboration and exploration.​​​

Our Learning Commons (Library) / Maker Space

Our learning commons is a beautiful and functional space. Students have access to computers, work spaces, and reading spaces for individual students, small groups and entire classes. We also have a Maker Space, which allows students to learn through exploration and technology. Students are encouraged to use the library and to take books home to read in the evening. Each class has a scheduled library period for 30 minutes once each week. Our librarian, Mrs. Rygus, is a great resource when it comes to finding great books!

Borrowing Rules

All library materials need to be treated respectfully. In the event that materials that were borrowed are damaged or lost, they will need to be replaced or paid for by the borrower.

Division 1 – Students may take out one book at a time from the learning commons. They are asked to return the book each week, but have the option of renewing it as often as they like.

Division 2 – Students may take out two books at a time from the learning commons. They are asked to return their books each week, but have the option of renewing them as often as they like.
