​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

Did You Know?

  • The William Reid Library houses nearly 14,000 books and audiovisual items?
  • We are doing inventory of our collection and preparing the Library for automation. That means that sometime this fall, your children will be scanning their books like at the public library.
  • The process involves inventory reconciliation, adding items with no records, deleting items no longer considered viable in our collection (this may mean the book is falling apart or that it contains info no longer appropriate for our children, or is long out of date), preparing books for attaching the bar codes, matching books to bar codes and taping the bar codes to the books.

The Rocky Mountain Book Award invites students and educators to participate in our readers' choice program. This program is designed to stimulate the reading interests of students in Grades 4 - 7. The Rocky Mountain Book Award is an Alberta-based program designed to connect young readers with exemplary Canadian literature.
