Riverbend Branch Future Plans
EPL is working closely with the City of Edmonton to design a new and more spacious Riverbend Branch at the Bryan Anderson Athletic Grounds Park near the Terwillegar Community Recreation Centre and the Leger Transit Centre.
It will be a medium-sized branch twice the size of the current location. With the space between 15,000 sq. ft. and 18,000 sq. ft., it will feature:
- A larger program room
- A makerspace with the latest equipment
- A children’s play space
- Enclosed spaces for quiet study
- Collaboration spaces for group work
- Plentiful soft seating for reading or visiting
- Collections to engage readers, listeners and viewers of all ages
- Lots of natural light
- Ample parking
The new Riverbend Branch will be located near the Lillian Osborne School, Archbishop Joseph MacNeil Catholic School, Mother Margaret Mary Catholic High School.
The new Riverbend Branch is not currently funded for construction.
