​​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

It is the hub for our school learning community. It is available to all students and is for research, reading and study. The Learning Commons is a fun, dynamic, and collaborative place for learning. Students will have an opportunity to sign out books using our self check out, use various technologies, and work with peers and teachers. School policy on use of communication devices applies in the Learning Commons. The Learning Common space will be open lunch hours Monday to Thursday.
