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.


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.

For something special, purchase a Library Lover Experience ticket to our next Speaker Series event! Library Lover tickets include reserved seating, entry to the exclusive reception post event where the presenters will be in attendance, and a tax receipt for a portion of the ticket price deemed charitable.


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

Changes to Books2Eat are coming in 2017. In the meantime, save the date of Thursday, October 5, 2017 at the Chateau Lacombe Hotel for our annual major fundraising event. More information to come soon!
