Learning Commons

Welcome to Langdon School's Learning Commons!

This is a place where students can access the resources they need to support their learning. Books, digital resources, computers, i-pads, VR technology, and more are all available to students and staff. If you have questions or need help finding a resource please contact Mrs. Tamara Kelly, the Learning Commons Facilitator. Contact by phone at 403-936-4579 or by email

At Langdon, the Learning Commons is a busy place where students can sign out traditional books, read e-books, do research, access technology, go online to search the web or databases, create with Creation Station activities, or just to quietly read as they explore their interests. This page provides information about the Learning Commons and some of the services offered.

The LC, also known as the Learning Commons, offers literacy support by providing a safe and supportive environment with physical and virtual spaces that engages students to ask questions and make new discoveries about the world around them.

The LC is here to support the research and learning needs of students as well as to provide opportunities to develop a lifelong love of reading.  Check out the e-resources available to students.

A plethora of print, non-print and e-resources are available to students and staff to pursue their learning inquiry.

The Learning Commons Facilitator, Mrs. Tamara Kelly, and the School Computer Technician, Mrs. Mayette Schrauwen, are part of the school's specialised staff who support students and staff.

Upon visiting the LC, students will become aware of the many genres of literature.

Students use the LC to access a variety of resources and technology for them to finish their homework or for recreation. Students can choose to: read, check out books, make discoveries about the world around them or, just relax.

Schedule to be announced!  Grades K-5 have a scheduled LC time during the week.  Keep posted! The schedule will then be found on the Parent Resource page. Coordinating with the teacher, students may also drop in to search for resources, and sign out or return their loans.

Depending upon the grade level, students will enjoy storytelling session, and Learning Commons orientation, circulation and reading time.

The Spine label tells two pieces of information.

  • F means Fiction or Chapter book
  • E means Easy or Picture Book
  • 355 or other numbers means Non-Fiction.
  • Every subject has it’s own number!
  • For example, dinosaurs are 567 and hockey is 796.

This is how we keep like books together on the shelves!

For future volunteers, even a few minutes is helpful!  The Learning Commons is always in need of a helping hand especially during book fair time.

This years book fair is taking place March 26-28, 2024.  Go to Scholastic.ca for activities, new and old titles, videos and more!
