Welcome to Wildwood School Library Learning Commons

The school library learning commons (LLC) is buzzing with activity as students borrow books to take home to read!

If your child(ren) are in SKILL or Division 1 classes (Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2 and 3), please check with your child(ren)’s teacher to find out when their book exchange date and time will be. These classes come down once a week to exchange books, and students can sign out new ones once they have returned their other books.  Also, if students finish their books early, they are welcome to come down and exchange their books (with teacher’s permission).

Our Division 2 students (Grades 4, 5 and 6) are signing out their own books using the self-checkout kiosk.  They also know how to check their own library accounts which they can review independently, at home or at school, prior to their book exchange.  This allows them to see what books they currently have signed out and when they are due (independence & mastery).  By bringing back their books on time, they are also learning responsibility and generosity.  Ask your child(ren) to share with you how it's done.

“Mr. Ginger: How to take care of library books!”, is an excellent YouTube video to share with your child(ren) at


Welcome to the heart of our school! From the morning bell to the end of the day, the library learning commons is always a hub of activity. This space provides a learner-centered space, allowing our students the opportunity for collaboration, inquiry, play and imagination. Our library learning commons allows for daily meetings for our English Language Learners, as well as an area for Calgary Reads and Grandparent Reading to interact with students.  Students are welcome to explore topics of interest, work with their peers and utilize print and digital resources to extend their learning.

The Wildwood School library learning commons includes a library that provides an opportunity for students, staff, and parents to check out books.  There is a variety of fiction and nonfiction at reading levels from early reading to grade 6 and beyond.  The library learning commons also allows for students to have a quiet place to read or even listen to a book.

All classes are scheduled for weekly book exchange times.  Students may also use a Library Learning Commons Pass to check out books anytime during the day.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Bakuska who can be found in the library learning commons.
