Bowen Library closing in response to Provincial Health recommendations for COVID-19
After consultation with Bowen Island Municipality, the Bowen Island Public Library is closing the library and cancelling all programs and events effective 5:00 pm today, Monday, March 16, 2020. This move is in response to direction from the Chief Medical Health Officer of BC and the Medical Health Officer for Vancouver Coastal Health. The closure will be in effect until further notice.
The decision was not an easy one to make, but the health of our staff, volunteers, and patrons is our highest priority, and we are working to limit the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible.
During this temporary closure, online library services remain available and can be found on our website www.bowenlibrary.ca. Updates will also be posted on our website and on Facebook. Staff will be available to answer questions by email.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during this difficult time as we all work together to ensure the well-being of everyone in our community and help slow the spread of COVID-19.
