Welcome Baby

EPL's Welcome Baby program puts books and early literacy resources into the hands of newborns and their parents as part of the two-month immunization.  A library card, books and story times are the first steps to a love and reading and success later in life. 

With your financial donation every child in Edmonton will have that same opportunity. A child without early childhood education is:

  • 25% more likely to drop out of school*
  • 40% more likely to become a teenage parent*
  • 70% more likely to be arrested for a violent crime*

The estimated cost of the program materials is $375,000 for the first year.

Literacy Vans

EPL Literacy Vans will bring the latest technology resources, along with library programs and services, to Edmontonians who don't have easy access to the library — those who live in new or underserved communities throughout our growing city, including in seniors' homes, daycares, boys and girls clubs, group homes, schools and more. We do not want location or transportation issues to be a barrier for those groups who need us the most.

Your donation will help put four new literacy vans - one for each quandrant of the city - onto Edmonton Streets.

Approximately $300,000 will be required for equipment and program costs for one Literacy Van.
