​​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

The library is open between 9:15 am and 1:15 pm Monday through Thursday and open during lunch Monday and Wednesday. Students wishing to use the library after these hours must be under the supervision of a teacher. Books may be signed out for a two-week loan period. Students with overdue books may not sign out additional books until the late books are returned or paid for if the book has been lost.

  • To sign into the library at the front desk if not under the direct supervision of a teacher.
  • To be always respectful to the library staff.
  • To treat all resources, books, cameras, computers, headsets with respect as per the technology expectations.
  • To be engaged in work when in the library (if the student is not under direct teacher supervision, student must have permission from their teacher).
  • To push in chairs and clean the workspace before leaving the library.
  • To use the couches and chairs appropriately
