EPL is an integral part of the community. The library is a place that helps Edmontonians connect, learn, belong and thrive. Here are some customer stories about their love for the library.
"It is an uplifting place to be. We have experienced so much growth in the last few years that the opportunities seem endless; you just have to find your fit."
– Ilona S., Collections Librarian
"I couldn’t have imagined driving a giant Literacy Van to provide library service in remote reaches of Edmonton, or filming a nursery rhyme video, or hosting a rap workshop for young offenders. EPL embraces diversity and so my experiences have been diverse, and I am professionally and personally better for it."
– Laura Y., Community Librarian
"When I moved to Edmonton a few years ago, EPL was one of the first places I visited. Because EPL is a safe and welcoming space, a compassionate institution with a big emphasis on newcomer and community outreach, I just had to apply!"
– Jason M., Library Assistant
"Working in an environment where I come to work and feel appreciated and supported really makes it easier to come into work every day. Having a sense of accomplishment where I can physically see how my efforts affect the entire branch is really motivating."
– Jennifer J., Page
