Virtual Programs

Virtual programs are provided by the Library Life is busy. We, here at EPLS, understand. We offer a variety of programs for all age groups. And just because you can't attend the live, in-house program, doesn't mean you have to miss out. Our virtual programs are recorded in-house programs or designed specifically for an online, live, interactive audience. 

Note: Due to the COVID pandemic, currently all EPLS programs are virtual.
