Year-Round Bookings in Edmonton

We are now handling non-subsidized year-round bookings for Edmonton Public Schools! YABS is an approved vendor with EPSB, which means that all schools in the Edmonton Public system have access to any of the artists on our roster. Please contact us for details if you're interested in booking an artist through us outside of Taleblazers!

How You Can Help

If you're looking into charitable donations, we hope you'll consider giving or requesting a donation to the Young Alberta Book Society. We are now members of the ATB Cares program which matches which contributes an additional 15% of every donation -- and they also cover all of the transaction costs! Donations can be made to YABS through ATB Cares here. You can also make a safe, secure, tax deductible donation through!


The YABS office sometimes experiences variable hours and occasional closures to accommodate meetings, professional development opportunities, and holidays. Please do be sure to call ahead if you plan to stop in for a visit!

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped us out during our casino in March 2015! We use casino proceeds to fund the travel for our Taleblazers Festival which takes place every October!
