​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

About Our Learning Commons

  • The Learning Commons is a multi use area with up to 3 or 4 classes in it at a time. Respect for the materials and space, and other students/staff working is very important.
  • Students are allowed to take out 2 books at any one time. Each class has a regularly scheduled time for book exchange. This time is flexible should the teacher need to reschedule as he/she sees fit.
  • Should a student finish with a book and need a new book, they are allowed to come to the Learning Commons during school hours with permission from their teacher to sign out a new book.
  • Students are asked to return overdue books (2 week loan period) prior to signing out new books. Should the book be lost or damaged (water damage from backpacks is number one thing), they are asked to pay for the book.
