Learning Commons Policies
Student I.D. must be presented to borrow library materials and sign out English Resources.
- Fiction - Non-fiction: 2 week loan
- Overdue materials: Students who have overdue library materials will not be allowed to borrow additional items.
- Lost materials: Students will be responsible for replacement cost of lost library materials.
Food & Beverages
Food and beverages are permitted in the Learning Commons! Students are expected to clean up after themselves and not eat at the computers. This policy is under review and can be changed at any time by the Learning Commons Coordinator.
Use of the Library
The Learning Commons is a vibrant, collaborative learning environment. Students are expected to be respectful and mindful of the people around them and moderate their volume to a reasonable level. We also have individual study pods for those wishing a quiet location to work.
Library Computer Use
The computers in the library are for the use of students and staff of Lindsay Thurber high school. Priority use of computers is as follows:
- Classes that have been booked by teachers to use the desktop PCs and/or Chromebooks
- Individuals sent by teachers to complete assignments
- Individuals completing assignments during their spares
If there are still computers available after these priorities are met, students may use computers for individual purposes as long as they do not infringe on Lindsay Thurber’s acceptable use policy for technology. Students should be aware that all work done on school computers can be monitored by staff. There are computers designated as "school work only" computers that are available during LT-Flex and lunch for students wishing to work on homework or other assignments.
Personally Owned Devices
Students are encouraged to bring their own personal devices (iPod, iPad, laptop, cellphone, etc.) to access the school wireless which is available in the learnng commons. Students should bring their own earbuds or headphones as these are not provided.
