​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. In September, students will be visiting the Learning Commons where the school library is located along with our computer lab and shared a common area used for collaboration. In addition to a well-stocked library, students may also borrow novels from our eBook library. 

These eBooks may be accessed on personal devices and read anywhere where Wi-Fi is available. Students will receive an orientation so they are familiar with both the traditional library checkout process and the online version. Families will be asked to replace traditional library books that are lost, damaged, or destroyed while in their child’s care. 

Summer Reading 

While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.

We have an exciting reading service available through SORA, the student reading app, which provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks.  What better way to engage your child’s mind than through reading?

This summer, the OverDrive Summer Read program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in SORA for quick and easy unlimited access from June 6 – August 15, 2019. You can explore the title offerings and learn more about the program here: https://resources.overdrive.com/summer-read/.

Boredom is not an option this summer.
