It's a new day at EPL

Five simple bars can mean a great deal. They can represent a stack of books, a subtle reference to the current logo and a nod to historical identity of libraries. It can be seen as a stack of compact discs, DVDs or video games, representing EPL's many entertainment options. It even echoes the barcodes that are scanned as EPL materials are shared with EPL users.

The multitude of bright colours suggests diversity. Diversity in content, resources and services. Diversity in how the library is used by each of its members. Diversity in users themselves, demographically, ethnically and in regards to their lifestyles.

The Edmonton Public Library carries everything you care about and cares about everything you are looking for. While we still provide the incredible content, unmatched access, unrivaled value and expert service you've come to expect from us, we've updated our look to better show our fun, fresh and innovative side. We're more than just buildings filled with books. We carry movies and music of every genre; video games for the most popular gaming consoles; databases for almost any subject; newspapers and magazines from around the world; eBooks and audiobooks compatible with the most popular devices and technology. You want it, we've got it!
