Our Meadows Branch is experiencing Internet connection issues. Internet is unavailable this evening. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Services at the Library

EPL is so much more than books and buildings. So get to know us even better with a tour. Tours are free, customizable and right for everyone, of any age.

From public Wi-Fi workstations and Chromebooks to expert knowledge, amazing programs and epic events, our branches and staff are sources of something incredible for everyone.

Book a Tour

Book a library tour online or simply contact your branch. We suggest booking your tour about four weeks in advance.

Computer Access

Have fun or get some work done. We're good with both.

All of our public computers offer:

  • Internet and email access
  • Word processing
  • Microsoft Paint for image editing
  • Printing, including web printing (access at http://print.epl.ca/)

In 2018, we rolled out a brand new computer experience!

The new system offers simplified printing, an updated and familiar desktop experience, Office 2016, Windows 10, cloud access and USB ports right on your monitor.

Access free Wi-Fi at EPL branches.

  • Make sure your Wi-Fi-compatible device is on, and its wireless networking is enabled.
  • Choose "EPL Free Wifi" as your network and launch your web browser.
  • Read and agree to follow EPL's Public Internet Use Policy.
Computer Access

Book your public computer time up to a week in advance with your EPL library card number and PIN. Our computers are popular, so don’t be late! If you’re more than 10 minutes late, your session will be cancelled.


Print directly from one of EPL's public computers or print from the web using your own device.

  • A $333.68 charge will be issued for a lost device.
