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 as part of the two-month immunization process.

A library card, books and story times are a gateway to a love and life of 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 flyers on early literacy.
