​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

The Eric Harvie Learning Commons is a place of wonder and a place where all members of our school community can nurture their love of reading and enrich their learning.  Our learning commons is a way to connect the 21st century learner in constructing knowledge through a variety of media:  print books, hands-on experiences, technology and access to digital information.  We have created a system where learners can locate books based on their genre.  This enhances an interest in specific topics and allows students to fully investigate their interests.
 
Families can search for specific books through the CBE eLibrary to find out what books are available in our learning commons and if needed these print materials can be borrowed by students by request.
