Volunteering at EPL is a life-enriching, rewarding experience, because supporting EPL supports the community we’re all a part of.
Our network spans across Edmonton, so we need and appreciate help with all kinds of tasks. We need volunteers for everything from the simple and technical, to the public and behind the scenes.
Literacy And Learning
Community Expert: Butcher, baker, or candlestick maker – do you have a specialized skill, talent, or hobby to share with your community? Volunteer to design and host a workshop, event or instruction session at the library in your areas of expertise.
Copains de lecture: Pour les ados de 13 à 17 ans seulement. Donner de votre temps et votre enthousiasme pour encadrer les enfants de la 2e à la 4e année qui lisent en français, par le biais de lectures individualisées et de jeux interactifs. Offert dans la succursale Idylwylde (Bonnie Doon) seulement.
Reading Buddies: Teens ages 13-17 only. Share your time and enthusiasm mentoring kids in grades 2 to 4 through one-on-one reading and interactive games.
