​​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 at Jack James is a teaching, study, and learning environment where all members of our learning community are welcome.  The Learning Commons offers access to a varied collection of resources on-campus. Access to e-books, online reference sites, subject-specific databases, and our current collection of fiction, non-fiction, and periodicals is currently available to enhance both learning and teaching.  This year, we will be collaborating with other CBE high schools to create a Virtual Learning Commons website that will be available for “anytime and anywhere” online access to numerous resources.  Housed within our bright, pleasant space, the Jack James Learning Commons offers quiet areas for reading and/or individual study, collaborative work/study areas, and a computer lab available for teacher bookings or individual student use.
