​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

Cedarbrae Learning Commons

Cedarbrae Learning Commons will be operating a little bit differently this year. Our mission still continues to be supporting readers and literacy by providing access to our reading resources and materials, it is how students get these resources that has changed.


This year the library will be coming to students. A variety of non-fiction, fiction, graphic novels, leveled readers and picture books will be brought to classrooms each week for book exchanges. Books that are returned will be placed in a quarantine bin for 3 days before being returned to shelves.



Online Book Requests

Just because students can’t browse the shelves in the Learning Commons does not mean they can’t get the books they want. Through CBE’s eLibrary students can look up books available at Cedarbrae School and request the one they want by filling out the Cedarbrae Library Book Order Form. Our Library Assistant will find the books and deliver them to the classroom or in the case of hub students to the office to be picked up. Materials can be borrowed for 2 weeks.


To access eLibrary students will need the following:

  • CBE student ID number
  • regular CBE password


To fill out the Cedarbrae Library Book Order Form students will need the following:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Teachers Name
  • The Title of the Book you want
  • The Author


If you need help with eLibrary the video’s listed below are excellent tutorials.


If you have library books from last year please send them back to the school.
