We have what it takes to put you and your students at the top of the class.
Teacher and student needs collide at EPL.
We’ve got a variety of resources to support literacy, life-long learning, leisure reading and educational needs. Like teachers, our expert EPL staff are passionate about literacy and helping students succeed.
Field Trips & Class Visits
EPL offers free library tours for all grade levels. Kids and teachers alike leap at opportunities to learn outside the classroom, so bring them to your local branch and learn more about and at the library.
Library tours range from a general introduction to the library, to an in-depth exploration of a topic of your choice. Book a free tour online now!
Bring the library to you. EPL staff can visit your school or class to promote literacy and showcase the research resources found at EPL branches. All sessions are free. To schedule one, please contact staff at your local library.
How to Be An Information Ninja
You’re the Sensei. Want to help your students master the art of research? Looking for an awesome way to kick start the topic of Japan, Renaissance, or Aztecs?
How to be an Information Ninja is a free in class presentation supporting the Grade 8 Social Studies curriculum. Students learn how to critically evaluate websites and search online resources available at EPL and through Alberta Education’s Online Resource Centre (ORC). Key learning outcomes from the Information and Communication Technology program (ICT) are also included.
This is an engaging and interactive presentation with hands on activities. Teachers are also given an opportunity to assess students’ work.
For more information, contact your local branch to book a session.
