​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

We welcome all students to the Learning Commons for individual, group research and leisure reading. In addition to books and magazines, the library has audio-visual materials as well as computers and software. Students are asked to recognize the rights and privileges of others when in the library. Students may access the library at lunch to read, use computers or play board games providing they have finished their lunch. Computers are available during the lunch break for students wishing to complete assignments. 

Borrowing Rules

It is important that library books or other resource material available on loan to students be returned within the required time so that all students have access to these materials. Students who lose or damage books or materials they have borrowed are responsible to pay for such loss or damage. We stress the importance of individual responsibility for care of possessions.

Hours

8:30 AM – 2:30 PM Monday to Thursday, 8:30 AM – 12:15 PM on Friday.
