Our website has a brand new look and we're so happy to have you here with us. Join us for a quick tour and some of the highlights we are so excited to share with you.

On-Demand Room Bookings

Our new website allows visitors to see the availability of our study rooms and lets you book up to one month in advance. Just click your desired room, pick the time and enter some basic information. Bookings will be sent to library staff for approvals before they are accepted.

More Makerspace Options

Our new Makerspace page has everything you need to get creative at the Library. Learn about all of the devices available at your local branch, book a 1:1 appointment with Library staff, or book your own time to use the Cricut cutting machine at either of our branches!


Improved Event Calendar With Online Registration

Our new events calendar is easier to navigate and starting in March you'll be able to sign up for programs directly through the website! Programs for February will remain available for sign up through Eventbrite.

Built with Accessibility in Mind

Designed to support every member of our community, the new egpl.ca can be navigated easier and faster than ever before. All links have helpful highlights and the whole page can be navigated with the touch of a button. We're also working hard so even our PDF downloads can be read by everyone who will be accessing this site. To see all of our accessibility offerings, visit our dedicated accessibility page.
