Learning Commons / Library

Our Learning Commons

Is the hub for our school learning community. It is for available to all students and is for research, reading and quiet study. There is zero tolerance for students eating or drinking in the Library/ Learning Commons; water bottles and lunch bags must be placed at the door upon entrance.

Due to COVID-19, there are new protocols when signing out books (CBE's 2020-2021 Re-etnry Guidelines).

The Learning Commons will not be available to students for finding resources.  Students are encouraged to visit eLibrary through the school website.

Students will be able to see our school collection and also their account activity.  For example; how many books tjey have signed out.

Below are some tutorials on how to use it.

1. Accessing Library

2. Navigating eLibrary

3. eLibrary Quick Search

4. Log into eLibrary and view My Account
