​​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 (Library) / Maker Space

Our learning commons is a beautiful and functional space. Students have access to computers, work space, and reading spaces for individual students, small groups and entire classes. We also have a Maker Space, which allows students to learn through exploration and technology.  Students are encouraged to use the library and to take books home to read in the evening.  Each class has a scheduled library period for 30 minutes once each week but may also drop in anytime the Learning Commons is open.  Our library assistant, Ms Bergh, is a great resource when it comes to finding books!

Borrowing Rules

All library materials need to be treated respectfully. In the event that materials that were borrowed are damaged or lost, they will need to be replaced or paid for by the borrower.

  • Students are allowed to take books out for two weeks - The number of books they’re allowed to borrow is determined by their teacher. 
  • Students needing books for research projects are permitted to borrow for up to two months.
  • Students with overdue items are required to return them before borrowing more.
  • Unless an item is new or on hold for another student, renewals are allowed.
  • Students can put items on hold.

RT @SASCBE: Our Grade 3/4s had a hands on experience building birds houses after learning about the importance of birds in Calgary. Birds are often seen as spiritual messengers who bridge the natural and spirit world in Indigenous cultures. @DClovis https://t.co/7DoX3d45Ca

RT @CJMCBE: Our Grade 5 students explored Weaselhead Flats today. We learned so much about wetlands, plants, and animals. We studied aquatic invertebrates and saw so many different birds. Thank you to our guide and to our parent volunteers 😃 #WeAreCBE https://t.co/H26VYcj1EY
