Rent a Room/Theatre

Our rooms are designed with sharing in mind.

EPL has rooms and theatres for rent at branches across Edmonton. They're accessible to anyone. Costs are based on room capacities and we provide non-profit organizations with substantial discounts on our rates.

Follow one of the links below to make an online rental request. Bookings must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the event date. Due to a high volume of bookings, please allow 3 business days for a response to your request.

Changes to EPL Room Booking Policy

The Edmonton Public Library has revised its policy and guidelines around community groups who use EPL meeting and program rooms. To ensure EPL has availability to use our own rooms and to provide a consistent approach for all branches, the following groups will continue to have cost-free access to our meeting rooms upon availability:

  • EPL partners
  • Groups meeting with EPL reps in attendance
  • Indigenous organizations and groups

Charitable organizations, non-profit societies and community partners will pay a nominal fee to use EPL meeting rooms. Other individuals, groups, or organizations will pay variable fees based on the room capacity.

Payment must be made upon booking the room and all consumables are the responsibility of the renters. With the exception of the Stanley A. Milner library, no after hour bookings will be accepted.
