The library roof is being replaced in August and continuing through at least September. Parking for library patrons has been reassigned to the yellow spots marked below. For public safety most of the back (north) parking lot is closed.
Scooter and bicycle parking along the back side of the library (north side) is NOT be available during construction.
See diagram below for information about the changed parking.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience during the construction on our historic building.
The summer reading club is winding down, and medals for those completed their 50 days of reading will be available at the final party Thursday August 21, at 1 pm. If you can't make the party or haven't quite finished your 50 days - don't worry. We will continue to present medals up until September 15. Just drop by the library when you've finished the 50 days of reading and we will present you with your medal and your achievement certificate.
For more information about the programs click here or email Nikky McCarvill, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday hours return as of September 7th, 2014 and will continue until May 31st, 2015. We are closed on Sundays during June, July and August, as well as Sundays preceding a holiday Monday.
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.
