Changes at Enterprise Square: 4 Important Updates

Big developments are in the works at Enterprise Squareopens a new window.

We’ve made some important changes at the Edmonton Public Library’s downtown branch (a temporary location during the Stanley A. Milner revitalizationopens a new window).

In an effort to make our temporary home even better, we’ve moved our program room to a new space, made the Makerspace more prominent, opened a new computer lab and freed up more working room.

1. Makerspace Upgrades

When we first moved to Enterprise Square, the Makerspace was a bit hidden away, tucked into a few small, separate rooms. Now, it’s got some spacious new digs in the centre of the action.

In its new, bigger, higher visibility and more comfortable location next to the children and teen areas of the library, it’s easier than ever for people to discover and use the space.

EPL’s Makerspaceopens a new window offers library card holders access to exciting technology and equipment intended to encourage everyone to create, collaborate and share.

Activities available in the Makerspace include:

  • Sound recording
  • Vinyl cutting
  • Green screen projects
  • And more

With tons of programsopens a new window and toolsopens a new window available, the Makerspace has something for everyone.

2. Relocated Program Room

To make room for the new and improved Makerspace, we had to, well, make space. That’s why we’ve moved our program room across the atrium from the main part of the Library. But don’t worry, it’s still in Enterprise Square—it’s even located on the same floor.

At 650 square feet, the new program room is larger than our old space and we’re looking forward to continuing to offer a wide variety of programs and eventsopens a new window in our new space.

You can find the new program room north of the library, across the food court.

3. New Computer Lab

We’ve also created a new computer lab in the spot formerly occupied by the Makerspace. The lab features 18 public access computers. It’s open to the public at most times, apart from programs that occasionally require the space.

4. More Space for All

We’ve also shuffled some collections around to make some more space on the floor. This has opened up more (much needed) seating and workspace for customers of this busy branch.
