​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

Is the hub for our school learning community. It is for available to all students and is for research, reading and quiet study.

Our Learning Commons is a flexible work area, designed to accommodate individual, group and classroom(s) study. Our fiction collection provides a good selection of subject matter, reading comprehension and topics that are relevant to today’s students. We also have a variety of writing styles including free verse and graphic novels. This collection is available to all students.

We do have a much smaller collection of about 100 books that is available to Grade 9 students. This collection supports those students who are well-read and ready to move from a middle-school collection. The collection includes authors such as Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Patrick Ness and Dan Brown.

Our non-fiction collection covers a wide-variety of subjects and the majority of the books are related to curriculum for Grade 5-9 students. The books are available for students to sign-out, and often these books are signed out to teachers for use in classrooms.

Borrowing Rules

All books are signed-out for a two-week period, and can be renewed for two more weeks if necessary.

Hours

The Learning Commons is open during nutrition break and over the lunch hour for individual students to come and exchange their books.

Over the lunch hour the Learning Commons is available for reading, studying, board games and puzzles.
