​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.​​​

Thank You

Thank you to the Indigo Love of Reading program and Crowfoot Chapters for sponsoring our school! Our students and families have amazing books to learn from and explore thanks to their generosity and support.
