Be Our Hero

Great libraries shape great cities. They are a powerful force in the economic, social and cultural well-being of a vibrant society. Public libraries provide amazing essential service in the communities they serve all over the world.

With your help, we can play a meaningful role in enhancing Edmonton and building a better community.

Like many other leading libraries, EPL has a broad and growing e-collection, comprehensive world language materials and extensive early literacy programs to name just a few. But what sets EPL apart – where we lead and where other libraries are taking notice – is in the many ways we are changing, adapting and transforming library services to best serve our community.

Our current priority project is the revitalization of the Stanley A. Milner Library.

With community support, EPL will transform the Milner Library in the next four years to better meet the growing and changing needs of Edmontonians. We will create purposeful spaces to collaborate, learn, access technology and attend events, as well as better connect to the outdoor space by Churchill Square on the north and Centennial Plaza on the south. It will be inspiring, educational, connected, inclusive and fun!

The Milner Library Revitalization Project has a $62.5million price tag.  The City of Edmonton has committed $52.5million towards the project, but EPL must raise the additional $10million from the community.  To lend your support and help bring the revitalized Milner Library to life, please donate today.  Every gift makes a difference!
