Friends of EPL

A “literary club for the culturally curious”, Anthology launched in 2016 as the primary initiative of the Friends of the Edmonton Public Library (FEPL). Over the past two years, Anthology has been a fabulous supporter of EPL, raising over $400,000, hosting 13 events, committing 2,700 volunteer hours and welcoming 100 members.

As the Anthology chapter of FEPL comes to an end and excitement builds for what’s next, EPL would like to thank Anthology supporters for their significant contributions to the organization’s fundraising achievements, as well as the awareness they created about the library.

We are currently looking for individuals who would like to become involved in the next chapter of FEPL and support the Edmonton Public Library in both raising funds and general advocacy. We’re very excited about what’s to come, and would love for you to be involved in shaping the future of this initiative! Please e-mail us to join the interest list.
