​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. 

The Learning Commons program is essential in assisting students to become lifelong learners. We try to provide a warm inviting place where students can interact with different forms of literature and pursue individual interests. The loan period for books is two weeks, at which time materials should be returned or renewed. A book may be renewed up to three times, unless another student reserves it. Students are held responsible for materials they sign out. Lost or damaged materials will be billed the original price.

Our Library Assistant is here during the mornings and we use our Learning Commons space for various activities over the lunch hour.
