EPL Signature Events

Smart people like to have fun too – and we do!

We have lots of signature events for our friends who want to have some fun while supporting important EPL programs and projects.


Books2Eat is our annual fundraising gala where literary and culinary worlds collide in support of an important community service.

Books2Eat 2016 takes place on Friday, September 30 at the Chateau Lacombe Hotel


EPL’s Forward Thinking Speakers Series reflects our rich history of taking risks, trying new things and redefining the modern library.

We invite thought-leaders from a variety of industries and topics to share their insights, ideas, experiences and viewpoints, with the ultimate goal of helping us build better organizations, neighborhoods and communities.

Library Lovers’ Events are intimate gatherings held in EPL branches, where community members connect and learn more about our innovative programs and services.

Recent Library Lovers’ events were held at our Mill Woods, Whitemud Crossing and Woodcroft branches. Keep an eye out for announcements about the next one.
