​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

Our Learning Commons provides an opportunity for students to purposefully create, inquire and explore through digital and media sources.  It is a place where technology is available to help capture the imagination of students and provide them with access to knowledge beyond the walls of the school.  As the core learning hub within the school, the Learning Commons has been designed to allow for multiple function configurations as well as provide exhibition spaces for inspired works created by students. 

We have put significant time, energy and funds into the development of our Learning Commons. It includes a Makerspace that provides activity opportunities for creation and innovation, by providing students and teachers with a ‘hub’ to explore, and experiment in a hands-on manner.

Library Books

Library books are loaned to students for a one-week period. There will be a replacement fee charged for lost or damaged books. Borrowing privileges will be suspended until the fee is paid. Grades 1-3 students can return and sign out new books when those previously loaned out to them have been returned. Kindergarten children have a regularly scheduled book exchange day for each class.
