About Milner Library

Opened in 1967 and renamed in 1996 in honour of library champion Stanley A. Milner for his lifetime of commitment to EPL—this branch is the heart of EPL and downtown. The Milner Library receives over 1.2 million visits each year.

In the fall of 2014, City Council approved funding for the revitalization and renewal of the Stanley A. Milner Library. The total budget as of December 2017 was $84.5 million with the expectation that $10 million would come through community support and fundraising. As of the end of 2018, EPL has raised roughly 85 percent of its fundraising goal for the Stanley A. Milner Library revitalization capital project.

The Stanley A. Milner Library closed for renovations on December 31, 2016 and renewal work began in January 2017. The revitalized Milner Library will help build a thriving, vibrant downtown, and serve as a key component in Edmonton's economic prosperity.
