​​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

Thank You

Thank you to the Indigo Love of Reading program and Crowfoot Chapters for sponsoring our school in previous years! Our students and families have amazing books to learn from and explore thanks to their generosity and support. 

Indigenous Collection

We have a variety of Indigenous books that honour Indigenous nations from across North America. We will continue to expand this collection.

Family Book Borrowing Policies and Expectations

Currently, parents or guardians of our students can sign out and borrow books. Students will be able to sign out books to bring home as determined by the student's teacher.
