​​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

Learning Commons at Richmond School

Students may borrow from our extensive picture book, easy reader, quick read novel, graphic novel, chapter book and non-fiction collections. Our Library/Learning Commons Assistant, Mrs. Rae, is on hand Monday – Thursday to help students pick books.

Library class visits: Each class will come to the Library/Learning Commons once a week at their designated time.

Borrowing Books: Students in Kindergarten may select one book and all other students may select 2. Books may be kept up to 2 weeks.  If more time is needed with a book, a student may request to renew it, which will be granted if there is not a Hold on the book. A book may be renewed up to 2 times. Books must be returned before you get any more.

Checking your account: To see what books you have checked out or on hold:

  • Log in at the top right with your Student id and password
  • Click My Account from the tool bar
  • Click Review my account

Returning books: Students may take the books home or read them at school. They are responsible for them and are encouraged to take good care of the books and return them clean and dry. If library books are damaged or lost, the replacement cost will be charged. Books are returned to the return bin outside the library/learning commons.
