​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 Borrowing Rules

  • Books are borrowed for 2 weeks at a time in school or at home, with a maximum 2 books at a time. Overdue books greater than 3 weeks must be returned or replaced before any new borrowing can occur. 
  • Learning Commons: Students can sign out Mac laptops, iPads, iPods, cameras, tripods, microphones, headsets, external hard drives and Kobos for use in the school – no equipment goes home. 

Students can receive expert help in creating technology media based projects, troubleshooting of technological issues and learn new technological skills.

For the latest additions to our library collections please visit the Library/Learning Commons blog page.
