The SD36 Library Learning Commons
The SD36 Library Learning Commons, both elementary and secondary, play an essential role in the delivery of the BC Curriculum and the Surrey School District's shared vision for learning-Learning by Design.

The 3 core aspects-Learning, Structures, and Tools-which prepare our learners for a world in which they can think creatively and critically, communicate skillfully and demonstrate care for self and others are supported by the School Library Learning Commons. Teacher librarians work to achieve this vision through services to students, collaborative work with teachers and leadership in schools.

Learning: SD36 Teacher Librarians collaborate to create learning experiences that are:
  • Inspired by individual passions, interests and needs
  • Connected to real-world experiences and challenges 
​Structures: The SD36 Library Learning Commons provide the flexibility to support powerful learning through:
  • Time, physical space, access to information and connection to community

Tools: The SD36 Library Learning Commons provide tools and learning experiences that

  • Enable digital cit​izenship and demonstrations of learning
  • Support access to information
  • Embrace the New Literacies
  • Encourage lifelong learning and appreciation of literature

All SD36 Library Learning Commons are staffed by qualified Teacher Librarians. Cataloguing, processing and other support services are handled by our District Learning Resources staff. For support with the Destiny Library Manager system, current ordering forms and other supporting documents, please visit the Learning Resources Page.
