Student Work Experience
Thank you for your interest in our high school Student Work Experience Program! Please check back in Fall 2021 for updated information on our program.
EPL’s Student Work Experience Programs provide opportunities for students like you to discover career possibilities with public libraries, develop skills and add practical experience to your resume.
Our Student Work Experience Program has opportunities for students in grade 9 and high school who are registered in a school work experience program. Work experience placements are unpaid.
Our 21 branches are open 7 days a week, and opening hours range from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., depending on the day. EPL is flexible in how your work experience placement is scheduled.
During your placement, you will learn more about our customer service focus, our collections, and our materials handling process (e.g. shelving materials). We provide the training and orientation—you provide the interest and enthusiasm!
Staff Testimonials
"It is an uplifting place to be. We have experienced so much growth in the last few years that the opportunities seem endless; you just have to find your fit."
– Ilona S., Collections Librarian
"I couldn’t have imagined driving a giant Literacy Van to provide library service in remote reaches of Edmonton, or filming a nursery rhyme video, or hosting a rap workshop for young offenders. EPL embraces diversity and so my experiences have been diverse, and I am professionally and personally better for it."
– Laura Y., Community Librarian
"When I moved to Edmonton a few years ago, EPL was one of the first places I visited. Because EPL is a safe and welcoming space, a compassionate institution with a big emphasis on newcomer and community outreach, I just had to apply!"
– Jason M., Library Assistant
"Working in an environment where I come to work and feel appreciated and supported really makes it easier to come into work every day. Having a sense of accomplishment where I can physically see how my efforts affect the entire branch is really motivating."
– Jennifer J., Page
