EPL branches are closed until further notice to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Holds on our physical collection are currently paused.

At the Library Book Sale, you can take our stuff home with you... and keep it!

EPL is constantly adding new materials to our collection, and we put aside any excess materials for our very popular Library Book Sales. We host several events a year to give the public the chance to get some great deals on books, movies, music and more at many of our branches. Tell your friends and don't miss out!

Donate Materials

The funds generated from the sale of donated books and other library materials at our Book Sales are used to enhance EPL collections and services.

Next Books2Buy Sales

Whitemud Crossing Branch hosted the first Book Sale of the year on March 6-8, 2020, and it was a roaring success. A huge thank you to the staff and volunteers who made it possible, and for everyone who came to check it out!
