The Bowen Reads Calendar is a fundraising project of the Bowen Island Library to support the building of the Annie Wood Annex behind the library. Named after one of our island pioneers (and the namesake of our very first library), the annex will provide much needed space for students, telecommuters, business-owners and community groups to meet, study and work. In fact "Annie" will offer enough space for up to 60 people to participate in cultural events or library programs.
The calendar features 13 photos of "famous" Bowen Islanders reading at home, at work or on the go. The calendar was created by three members of our library board and one staff member with the invaluable assistance of 41 Bowen Island models, and, except for the printing, is a 100% volunteer effort,
The calendars are for sale now at the Library, Bowen Building Centre, Phoenix on Bowen, Cates Pharmacy, and The Office. All profits from the $20 cost of each calendar will bring us closer to building the Annie Wood Annex and making Bowen Library big enough for all of us.
