3.8
The Stanley A. Milner Library was the main library for Edmonton Public Library. It was located on the southern side of Sir Winston Churchill Square in downtown Edmonton, near City Hall, Edmonton City Centre mall, the Francis Winspear Centre for Music, and the Citadel Theatre. As a central location in Edmonton, the library often took part in various events held at Churchill Square. In 2010, the library held an outdoor book sale in the square, selling aging and duplicate materials to the public. The Stanley A. Milner Library had a number of meeting rooms and a small theater in the lower level, that were used for library programs and would also be rented out by the public. The building is directly connected to the underground pedway network and to Edmonton's LRT. A number of ETS bus routes also serve the library along Harbin Road (102 Avenue) and 100 Street. Underground parking, run by the city, is also available. In 2016, the library closed its doors after that the new Enterprise Square Branch would open.The Stanley A. Milner Library was also a centre for assistive services. Specialized magnifiers, projection reading rooms, large print books, braille material, voice dictation stations, and specialized computers were available as part of the library's mission to provide information access to all.

  • I love EPL, and i used to love this branch most. But all the cool things you put in won't make up for the debasement of just getting in there, through the screaming and spitting and fighting and stink right outside the door. Hard pass.
  • The Stanley A. Milner Library is a great place for studying and just relaxing. It offers a huge selection of books, magazines, movies, etc., and activities for all ages. I especially like the fact that there is no fee if you want to apply for a library card. You simply show a government issued ID and a proof of residence in Edmonton to qualify. The library card is given to you on the spot.
  • Love this place! Opportunity to use the multi media space for video editing. Thanks Edmonton!
  • Wonderful place. Great selection, more than a parent could ask for kid section wise, friendly staff, wonderful resources, and fantastic drop in programs.As for the homeless "problem" it is really not that bad, there is a security guard there if any real problems arise, and most people that come in off the streets are there to access resources to help them find jobs, homes, health care etc. The public library is for everyone. Please don't let some of these reviews stop you from going to this location, it really is a great spot . :)
  • Very friendly staff and the Makerspace was great!

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
