Library
The Stanley A. Milner Library is the main library for Edmonton Public Library. It is 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 takes 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 has a number of meeting rooms and a small theater in the lower level, that are used for library programs and can 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.The Stanley A. Milner Library is also a centre for assistive services. Specialized magnifiers, projection reading rooms, large print books, braille material, voice dictation stations, and specialized computers are available as part of the library's mission to provide information access to all.HistoryThe Stanley A. Milner Library was opened in 1967 on the southern edge of Churchill Square. The site of the library was originally home to Market Square, Edmonton's main square and city market from 1900 to 1965. Although the square and market were considered a hub of Edmonton's community, the city wished to create a more dedicated civic centre. The city had already built and relocated city hall to its current location in 1956 and, in conjunction with the new art gallery completed in 1969, the library was designed to form part of this new centre.

  • 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!
  • Very friendly staff and the Makerspace was great!
  • 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 . :)
