The Edmonton Public Library, an over 100 year old institution, is Edmonton’s largest lender of information and entertainment; providing free educational resources, classes and information to customers of all ages and welcoming 1.2 million visitors each year.
EPL’s downtown branch opened in 1967 and was renamed the Stanley A. Milner Library in 1996. It’s namesake, Dr. Stanley A. Milner, was a Canadian businessman and politician and the driving force behind the construction of EPL’s flagship branch.
With the goal of contributing to the growth, community, and meeting the changing needs of the downtown core, EPL commenced an over 18 million dollar 4 year revitalization of its flagship branch.
While filming, the building was undergoing final renovations in order to be ready for opening day; on-going open communication, time management, adapting to unforeseen circumstances, and the ability to produce alternative creative solutions to varying obstacles was crucial in the completion of the project.
In addition, filming took place during August of 2020, when Covid-19 restrictions were in full-effect. We took all necessary precautions in order to ensure safe filming conditions for all involved.
