Book Exchange is Back!

Teachers can sign up for a weekly timeslot. Students will view a selection of books chosen by the library assistant. The only thing students will touch is their book once it has been signed out to them. Once books are returned, they are quarantined for 3 days.

What if I want to pick a specific book?

Students can request specific books through eLibrary. 

  1. Go to eLibrary
  2. Sign in
  3. Search
  4. Check "Keep" beside the book you want
  5. Click the "Kept" button
  6. Type "Library-330@cbe.ab.ca" into the email field and click "Email"
  7. Your book will be delivered to your class during your weekly timeslot

Whoa! You went through that way too fast

  1. Go to eLibrary. You can also click on the blue book icon to the right.
  2. Sign in - If you do not, the library assistant will not know who sent the request
