2014 Gale/LJ Library of the Year: Edmonton Public Library, Transformed by Teamwork

2014 Gale/LJ Library of the Year: Edmonton Public Library, Transformed by Teamwork | Libraries in Demand | Scoop.it
For 101 years, Alberta’s Edmonton Public Library (EPL) has galvanized its ever-growing city. From its beginnings above a meat and liquor store in 1913 to its current configuration as a massive, team-driven enterprise, EPL has served as a pioneering gathering place, connecting people and expanding minds. In the process, it changed the parameters of what it means to be a public library and transformed itself. Having the spirit and creativity to do that meant taking risks, innovating, and embracing change. It made EPL a model for all public libraries and the winner of the 2014 Gale/Library Journal Library of the Year Award.
