​​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.​​​

Learning Commons / Library

Our Learning Commons

The Abbeydale Library provides an opportunity for students, staff, and parents to check out books. The collection contains many books, cassettes and magazines. Both the circulation and the card catalogue are automated using the CBE Accent program.

Library Hours

Monday to Thursday 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM
Friday 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM 

All classes are scheduled for weekly book exchange times. As well, students may, with their teacher’s permission, check out books anytime during library hours. Parents are also welcome to borrow books from the library. Library events will be posted on our site as well as outside the library on our bulletin whiteboard.
