​​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

Students will be visiting the Learning Commons where the school library is located along with our computer lab and a shared common area used for collaboration. In addition to a well-stocked library, students may also borrow novels and families will be asked to replace traditional library books that are lost, damaged, or destroyed while in their child’s care.

ll students may access the library throughout the school day. They may sign out two books. The books are overdue after two weeks. The library generates an overdue notice and late fees will be applied. After the second notice, you will be billed the cost to replace the book.

Borrowing Rules

  • All students are welcome to use the library during the times assigned by their teachers.
  • Students are required to use the sign-out sheet on the library counter to sign out books on Fridays or at other times when there is no one to assist you.
  • Please do not bring food or drinks into the library.
  • Students can check on the status of their library loans using the CBE’s eLibrary application.

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird? https://t.co/W2MjY26FrR
