​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

Who can borrow books?

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.

When can parents/guardians borrow books?

The learning commons will be open for parents and guardians during drop off and pick up times. These times included: 8:25 - 8:40 AM, 11:15 AM - 11:30 AM, and 12:00 - 12:15 PM. After school selections may be available upon request.

How many books can a family borrow at a time?

A family may borrow 2 books at a time. 

How long can a family keep the books for?

Families can keep books for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks the books must be brought back to the learning commons and either returned or renewed. 

What happens if a book is lost or damaged?

Families will be expected to pay the school for the price of the book.
