Winter Storytime session has begun at Bowen Library. Join us for stories, songs and rhymes on Friday mornings at 10:30 am.
This free drop-in program is open to children ages 2 to 5 and their caregivers. This session starts January 17, 2014.
Featuring 13 photos of "famous" Bowen Islanders reading, the Bowen Reads Calendar is a fundraising project of the Bowen Island Library to support the building of the Annie Laurie Wood Annex beside the library. Named for one of our island pioneers (and the namesake of our very first library), the annex will provide much needed space for events, programs and study.
The calendar is a volunteer effort, created by Library Board members Len Gilday, Donaleen Saul, Tim Rhodes and Librarian Tina Nielsen, with the invaluable assistance of 41 Bowen Island models. Our 2015 calendar is now in the planning stages.
2014 calendars are still available at the Library, Bowen Building Centre, Phoenix, Cates Pharmacy, Ruddy Potato, and Bowen Roasting. All profits from the $20 cost of each calendar will bring us closer to building the Annie Laurie Wood Annex and making Bowen Library big enough for all of us.
Tech Tutoring is available 14 hours per week by appointment. Our Tutor, Leo Pedersen is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, though other days may be available. Until March 2014 we also have Alison Osborne available for additional Tech Tutor appointments. Call or email for appointments: firstname.lastname@example.org, or 604 947-9788.
