​​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

Is the hub for our school learning community. It is available to all students and is for research, reading, and quiet study.

Our Learning Commons is a flexible work area, designed to accommodate individual, group, and classroom(s) study.

Our fiction collection provides a good selection of subject matter, reading comprehension, and topics that are relevant to today’s students. We also have a variety of writing styles including novels in verse, graphic novels, and magazines. This collection is available to all students.

Our non-fiction collection covers a wide variety of subjects and the majority of the books are related to the curriculum for Grade 5-9 students. The books are available for students to sign out, and often these books are signed out to teachers for use in classrooms.

Borrowing Rules

All books are signed-out for a two-week period and can be renewed for two more weeks if necessary.

Please use the student sign-out computer to check books out, or see the school’s Library Assistant for help
