Learning Commons

Welcome to RancheView School's Learning Commons!


ONGOING - Calling Volunteers!

Do you have a couple of hours a week to help in the Learning Commons?

Ms. Wise needs help with books:

        • Check in
        • Shelving
        • Processing new books
        • Displays
        • Book repair
        • Cataloguing (do you have experience?)

Please email or call with your contact information and what days and times you are available. (kwise@rockyview.ab.ca).

Ms. Wise is looking for volunteers each day of the week to start right away!

October 2018 Scholastic Book Fair

What a fantastic Book Fair! We had over $9,000 in sales. That means that Scholastic provides us with over $5,000 in rewards - more books for the Learning Commons and more books for RancheView classrooms!

Special thanks to Mrs. Johnston and to Ms. Smith for volunteering.

Thank you so much to RancheView families. You are a wonderfully book-y community.


Use the Library Catalogue (Koha) to see what books are in the Learning Commons. You do not need to log in to search.

Log in to see what you have borrowed using your 'rvschools' account.

Every RancheView leader can have two books from the Learning Commons. Overdue notices are emailed to student leaders and their family contact.

Online Information

Our student leaders and adult leaders can get current, relevant, authoritative, accurate and fit-for-purpose information online!

You don't need to figure out if that web page you 'googled' is a good one. Use these links instead:

Rocky View School District Resources
RVSD lists the online information available and also lists good websites to use that have access to free, credible information.


Online Reference Centre Databases

Learn Alberta gives access to all students, teachers, and parents in Alberta. If you need the login information, please contact your teacher or Ms. Wise.

If you need help figuring out what database to use, go to the ORC support site.

The RancheView Learning Commons happily accepts donations. Here are some guidelines for books we can use:

      • Excellent condition
      • Prefer from no-pet, no-smoking homes
      • Less than 5 years old or hardcover


We have been able to add many donated books to the Learning Commons and at  least that many have been added to classroom libraries! A huge thank you to all who have donated so far.




Mon-Fri: 8:30am  - 2:30 pm
