Library / Learning Commons

Welcome to the Captain Cook Elementary School Library Learning Commons!

My name is Mr. Liang and I am the teacher-librarian for Captain Cook Elementary.

Our library is a great place for students to learn. Our collection contains a wide variety of wonderful English books for readers of all levels.  New titles are added throughout the school year.  The library is open throughout the school day.  I look forward to working with all the students in the school.


Checking Your Library Account

By checking your account, you can find out:

  • Which and how many books you have checked out.

Databases, eBooks and Videos

The Vancouver School District provides all students with access to a digital library filled with databases, ebooks and video services. (A database is an organized collection of information and an ebook is an electronic book).

Students can find information to do research and complete assignments, read and interact with ebooks and watch educational videos.

Library Monitors

Our Library  Monitors , made up of senior students, contribute their time to help our library run smoothly. In addition, we always welcome family volunteers interested in helping out.  **At this time, there are no library monitors or family volunteers due to Covid-19.
