Learning Commons


Traditional school libraries are seen as quiet places full of printed books, people reading and librarians ‘shushing’. A Learning Commons takes school libraries into the 21st century. Yes, we still have printed text, and there are still people reading, and there is still a librarian, however the Learning Commons has so much more! There is a hum of activity with students talking, learning, searching for information on a variety of devices, focusing on content creation and synthesizing of information. The Learning Commons becomes the hub and the heart of the school; a place for teachers and librarians to collaborate to build inquiry learning and critical thinking skills in students; a place for technology integration and experimentation; a place that is ‘owned’ by students and staff alike. 

Students and parents may access the Learning Commons catalog online at home or at school by visiting Destiny or our new Destiny Discover


Of course, if there are any questions about the School Learning Commons, do not hesitate to stop in or call the school at 403-728-3459. Below are some fun and interactive resources for students to get familiar with!
