​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

Terrace Road Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is a busy, collaborative space which houses not only Fiction and Non Fiction print resources but a number of desktop computers, a Lego building station, a puzzle station, live fish aquarium, Professional Learning Materials, home reading and guided reading programs. Our print collection supports and encourages creativity in the Makerspace area as well! 

There are a number of individual and group work/reading areas to choose from. Through out the week our LC hums with several volunteer tutors working with students in the Calgary Reads program. The LC is currently also housing our Free Little Library which is open to all students to exchange a book from home.

Students in Kindergarten to Grade 1 take out 1 book at a time while honing their book caretaking skills. Students in Grades 2-6 are allowed 2 books at a time, more if they are working on a project.

RT @ChildMntlHealth: Is today the most depressing day of the year? Actually, it isn’t. #BlueMonday may be science fiction, but it offers up a time to talk about the challenges we're currently facing in light of COVID-19 and to build resilience for the weeks (months) to come: https://t.co/UfszUGzw0W https://t.co/kJjc2dxWRW
