​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 Learning Commons gives you access to print, digital resources and a maker space. In addition to visiting the Learning Commons with your class, you are welcome to use the space before school, at lunch, after school and during study periods.

Please have you school photo ID ready - you will need to for using the technology and borrowing resources.

Borrowing Rules

You can check out books for three weeks. We do not charge overdue fees but kindly ask that you return your books on time so others can enjoy them. I am always happy to help or point you in the right direction when you are doing research. We have great databases for students and also highly encourage every student to get a Calgary Public Library card. They are open in the evening and weekends so kids can do research or study there in the evenings.

Hours

  • Monday to Thursday: 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM 
  • Friday: 8:00 AM - 1:15 PM 

Test Centre

You will be able to write tests, quizzes etc. in a teacher-supervised test centre. Please arrange this with your teacher and bring your school photo ID with you. The test center is open Tuesdays and Thursdays after school.
