Ascension of Our Lord is moving the library into the direction of a Learning Commons. The Learning Commons is compared to the metaphor of a kitchen: the heart of your house where you create a variety of foods! A library is compared to a supermarket where you go to purchase. Moving towards a Learning Commons framework is a large part of our School Plan for the next several years.
Our school has worked with District Personnel to create a vision and an implementation plan. Future additions include a movable bookshelf, flexible tables and additional technology. We hope to add a “Maker Space”, more books, digital access to literacy and research as well as a flexible space for entire classrooms to access as well as to provide individual students a comfy space to “curl up and read”!
The Resource Management System allows you to login to your home school library using your district username and password and provides access to learning resources at all schools and the Instructional Materials Centre (IMC). You can now search and view items from both your own school library and the district IMC at one time. Use your school library catalogue to search and request IMC resources.
