Welcome Baby Kit Preparer

Welcome Baby Kit Preparer

EPL's Welcome Baby program has expanded. Our partnership with Alberta Health Services allows us to deliver our award-winning programs and services for babies and preschoolers outside the walls of the library and in the community through public health clinics, NICU hospital units and the Enoch Health Centre as part of the two-month immunization process.

A library card, books, music and early literacy programs are a gateway to a love and life of words, stories & reading. Every child in Edmonton deserves access to literacy resources essential to success in school and life.

As a kit preparation volunteer, you will help bundle Welcome Baby kits, which include a CD, board book and pamphlets on early literacy.
