Welcome to Wilson’s Learning Commons Page! Also known as “Ketcheson’s Cave”. My name is Renee Ketcheson and I am the Learning Commons Facilitator here at Wilson.
Hours for the 2020/2021 year:
8:00 am– 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday
The Virtual Book Fair is coming back!!
Save the date! - MARCH 8-19
There will be new selections to pick from.
You can start browsing any time and check out the book trailers!
I am going MOBILE! I will bring a selection of books to you during your learning commons time. These books will remain in the red bin in your classroom until I pick it up one day before your scheduled class so I can bring a fresh bin. If you would like to see a specific theme added let your teacher know so I can add it. If you'd like a specific book, please see how to hold it below.
Do you have a book from last year? Please bring back any books that you may have from last year. Even if it's from a different school, bring it to me and I can send it back to that school for you!
TO PLACE A BOOK ON HOLD
Go to Destiny Discover (link at the bottom of this page)
Search for a book
Log in using your school username and password (this will work at home too) at the top right corner or beside the book.
If you want to hold, click "hold".
The day I receive the notification of your hold, I will deliver it to you by the end of the day.
PLEASE NOTE: IF THE CALL NUMBER STARTS WITH CL OR PRO, THAT BOOK WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO YOU.
While you're in Destiny Discover, write a quick review of a book (or ten) that you've read. Just search the book and click on "add review" beside the image.

SORA is great for many reasons! You never have to worry about overdue or fines. The e-books are returned automatically. You can still renew if needed and you can take out 3 more books on top of the ones from our LC. You can also access any public library you are a member of. Just go to "Add Library" on the right side of the screen.
You can get a Public Library card on-line and for FREE this year! You can also link it with SORA so when you search SORA for a book, it will search the public library as well. Plus the Lethbridge Public Library has a TON of things to do on-line! Check it out!
