Renovation 2017

Reno iconThank you all for your patience during our renovation closure. We re-opened on December 12.

The library has had a refresh in preparation for the opening of the Cove Commons addition. We moved our circulation desk to better align with revised access to the library via the Cove Commons. The main front door will remain as an entrance, but an additional entrance will be on the north side of the new addition. We have replaced some carpet, renovated the children’s area, moved our information and circulation desk, and created a teen area.

Over the next few months we will add some finishing details to the renovation including new furniture in the children’s and teen areas, wood end panels for our new metal shelving and more display shelving all around. As we use the space and look at access and function we welcome your feedback on what works and where we could improve.

Drop us a line at info@bowenlibrary.ca if you have feedback to share.

We understand that our extended closure may have created some inconveniences for you. Please be assured that all items returned during our closure and up to December 31, 2017 will NOT be charged any fines regardless of the due date.

 Increased borrowing and due date during the closure

During the renovation we increased the borrowing limit in order to allow you to take out enough material to last you 5 weeks. If you have any questions about those items, or want to check whether they have all been returned, you can log into your library account or call us at 604-947-9788. We’d be happy to look up your account and let you  know if you still have library materials at home.

Returning items

Until the Cove Commons opens in February 2018 we will be using a temporary after hours return in the east wall of the library, facing Cardena Drive. Our apologies that this slot is not large enough to accommodate all library materials. Large items (such as some children’s picture books, or very thick books) will need to be returned inside the library during our open hours. No overdue fines will be charged on items that could not fit through the temporary return slot.

Thank you again for your patience.
