When we set out to raise funds for the Edmonton Public Library's Welcome Baby program, we never could have expected the outpouring of support we would receive. You shared stories about your personal love of reading, your experience with the Edmonton Public Library, and your immense love for your kids, grandkids, and the kids of your friends and neighbours. Through all of this love and support, we were able to crush our fundraising goal of $15,000 and present a cheque for $28,917 to the Edmonton Public Library, providing the gift of reading to over 1,150 Edmonton families this year.
We could not be more in awe of everyone’s commitment to this program. But let’s not let it end here. The Welcome Baby Program is an ongoing initiative requiring funds to sustain its success year after year. Donations help prepare children for a lifetime of literacy and learning. If you are interested in continuing to give, on-going donations can be made at www.epl.ca/give.
