Why Give?

Great libraries shape great cities. They are a powerful force in the economic, social and cultural well-being of a vibrant society. Public libraries provide amazing essential service in the communities they serve all over the world.

With your help, we can play a meaningful role in enhancing Edmonton and building a better community.

Like many other leading libraries, EPL has a broad and growing e-collection, comprehensive world language materials and extensive early literacy programs to name just a few. But what sets EPL apart – where we lead and where other libraries are taking notice – is in the many ways we are changing, adapting and transforming library services to best serve our community.

Why Do You Give?

Because you have a special connection. Every reason is personal. Some give because they’ve loved their library since childhood. Others appreciate that the work we do is a vital resource for so many.

Those reasons that inspire you to give are our lifeblood. You provide funds for life-changing programs, services and materials that aren’t supported through municipal taxes.

Here’s a look at where the money goes:
