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.

Young Reader's Choice Awards

Young Reader's Choice Awards is an international reading program for students in grades 4-12, and students can nominate titles and choose winners. Visit the YRCA page to have your class cast their votes. 

Book a Librarian to come to your school and talk about the titles by contacting a staff at your local branch  Visit the YRCA Classroom Resources page for copies of book profiles and book talks.
