Volunteering at EPL is a life-enriching, rewarding experience, because supporting EPL supports the community we’re all a part of.
Our network spans across Edmonton, so we need and appreciate help with all kinds of tasks. We need volunteers for everything from the simple and technical, to the public and behind the scenes.
Library Access Services
Home Service Volunteer: EPL helps people with reduced mobility access our services through its Home Service program. Volunteers help by bringing library materials to those unable to visit the library.
Literacy And Learning
Reading Buddies: Teens ages 13-17 only. Share your time and enthusiasm mentoring kids in grades 2 to 4 through one-on-one reading and interactive games.
