We Reached Our Goal!


40,194 Edmontonians thank you for helping EPL raise $2.5 million to support the Welcome Baby program and epl2go Literacy Vans.

Thanks to your contribution, over 90% of children born in Edmonton now receive a Welcome Baby early literacy kit through Alberta Health Services as part of the two month immunization. This means equal access to early literacy resources and tools essential for their healthy development.

Right now, two epl2go Literacy Vans are bringing library programs and services, along with the latest technology resources to new and underserved communities throughout Edmonton every day.  Thanks to donor support, two more epl2go Literacy Vans will hit the streets later this year.  Once our fleet is  complete and we have all four vans in operation, we will reach over 42,000 more people every year!

Because of your generous support of the Welcome Baby program and epl2go Literacy Vans, so far 40,194 Edmontonians have enjoyed library resources to help them learn, grow and thrive. You have helped change the lives of many Edmonton children, families and communities as they prepare for a lifetime of learning.
