How EPL Can Help Educators

Your Dedicated Branch Contact

Your library branch contact is your one-stop-shop for all things EPL, from booking visits to connecting you with the right resources for your students, providing age-appropriate reading recommendations, organizing staff training and more.

Visit the Library

EPL offers free library tours for all levels, ranging from a general introduction to the library, to an in-depth exploration of a topic of your choice.

This program is available to schools, daycares, dayhomes, homeschools and after-school groups.

Bring the Library to You

Class Visits: EPL staff can visit your location to promote literacy and showcase the research resources found at EPL branches. All sessions are free.

Staff Meetings: Bring our expert library staff to your next team meeting and we’ll deliver personalized literacy training. All sessions are free.

These programs are available to schools, daycares and after-school groups. 


School Library Card Program

Your students can get their EPL cards sent directly to your class. Now that’s good service.

This project is in partnership with the Conseil Scolaire Centre-Nord, Edmonton Catholic Schools and Edmonton Public Schools. For further information about this project, please email
