​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

NEW FOR 2020/21

Library Hours

Students and Staff will not be able to physically browse the library for books.  Once ordered online, books will be delivered to students in their classrooms.

Please use E-Library to browse for English books. 


Please use this link to request Library Books:  BOOK REQUEST

The form will ask for the following information:

1.  Book information:  Title, Author, Call No. (if possible)

2.  Student Information:   Student full name, Student ID, Homeroom Class

One Mandarin Book will be pulled by our Library Assistant and delivered to your child's teacher for distributing.

Rules for Borrowing

Each child at Midnapore School has an opportunity to borrow one to two library books each for a period of 2 weeks.  If books are needed longer than 2 weeks, please email Library-363@cbe.ab.ca to request a renewal.

Once books are returned, they will be quarantined for 3 days, and will require a 2 week turnaround before they are available to borrow once again.

Students can use E-Library to check for books on their accounts:

1.  Enter your CBE Username/Student ID and password into the login fields.

2.  Click "Login"

3.  Click on Accounts Tab and the Review my Account.


Caring for Library Books

Take care of our library books by treating it and storing it respectfully. Always wash your hands before handling or reading your books. Never eat or drink near your books. Carry your library books in your back pack closed and away from water bottles. Please don’t draw in the books or leave it down for pets to find. Always use a book mark to keep your spot and please do not fold your books backwards, that wrecks the spine and pages. During winter, snow and rainy days it might be a good idea to transport your books in a plastic bag in your backpack.
