​​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

The LC functions as a central location providing access to books, information technology and other shared materials. Books can be borrowed for a two week period and be renewed up to two times. Reference books and current magazine issues do not circulate outside of the LC.

We have a number of laptops available for student sign-out. These are available to students in Grades 7-9 during a class to write or complete an assignment or to do research. These are not meant to be signed out for the entire day, nor are they permitted to go home with the student. To participate in this program, parents and students must have signed and submitted the ‘Computer Loan Program’ form.

No food or drinks, including bottled water, are allowed in the LC or at computer workstations. Families are expected to cover the costs of resources that are lost, stolen or destroyed while in their child’s care.

RT @JES_CBE: The Grade 4’s were inspired by graffiti artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat. We noticed he would have a bold central picture that was in black, and then he used a lot of bright colours to add interest to his work. @artistbasquiat #wearecbe #CBEart https://t.co/q4OyyrETcw
