EPL Early Literacy Videos

As part of Edmonton Public Library's current focus on early literacy, they have launched some great videos with songs and rhymes that kids can enjoy. They are both entertaining and educational and provide a nice break in the day for busy moms or caregivers. The videos are well done, short and very appealing for young viewers.

So far they have launched 3 videos dubbed as "Storytime Station" and will be launching one a week for the next 5 weeks on the Edmonton Public Library YouTube channel. The first few can be found at, and the rest will follow a similar approach of rhyme and animation.

EPL has given permission for libraries to share, post and use these videos in any way they wish. They do have EPL branding at the beginning and end but the rhymes are universal. There is an epromo kit available for libraries to use if you are interested in sharing these on your website (the kit includes banners and titles). Please let me (Terra) know if you are interested in accessing these.

A great example of the ways libraries can serve a need identified in their community.
