Edmonton Public Library System

Edmonton Public Library (EPL) is Edmonton’s municipal library system. Their mission is simple: “We share!” Under that mandate, they work to share expertise, information, technology, and space with Edmontonians for learning, connecting, creating, discovering, enjoying, and enriching communities.

Over 260,000 Edmontonians regularly use their services. And the Edmonton Public Library loves that every person who comes to them brings with them a rich mixture of cultures, values, opinions and beliefs. They see it as their role to celebrate this diversity and protect the intellectual freedom of their customers. That means they make all kinds of material available to people, because they believe readers are free to access and develop their own informed opinions and ideas.

As Edmonton’s largest lender of information and entertainment, their greatest passion is creating connections to help, grow, inspire, and change. Edmonton Public Library is the gathering place for people and ideas, enabling a lifetime of learning, engagement, and possibility for every Edmontonian.
