Library Learning Commons

"You can find magic wherever you look.

Sit back and relax, all you need is a book."

Dr. Seuss

Library Learning Commons

At Saint John XXIII, we are evolving our library into a library learning commons. A library learning commons is designed to engineer and drive inquiry, support project/problem-based learning experiences, inspire creativity, and foster collaboration and dialogue. Reading and literacy are present and interwoven into our learning commons. Students continue to select books to take home and each library period, students engage in a read aloud with our librarian.

As we transform into a learning commons, greater opportunities for learning literacies and technology competencies will evolve, and critical thinking, creativity, innovation and playing to learn will flourish. Celebrating a love of books and reading,  and imagination continues to be the fabric of our Saint John XXIII learning commons. 

"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.  

If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales."

Albert Einstein
