Library Takeout Service

The library has reopened, and our “takeout” service has returned to our normal holds service.

Put hold requests on books, DVDs, magazines, or medical equipment from the library collection, and check out your requested items from our front desk during library open hours.

  1. Go to our catalogue and search for the items you want to borrow.
  2. Place a hold on each item you want to borrow.
  3. You will be notified when your hold is available, and you will have seven days to come to the library to pick it up.
  4. Come by the library and check out your items on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 12 pm and 3 pm.

Contactless pickup through Takeout Service is still available on request.

If you are not comfortable coming inside the library, please contact us to arrange for contactless pickup or delivery. If you are self-isolating or are feeling unwell, please contact us so we can prepare your items to be picked up by a friend or another family member. You can request specific available items, or we can choose a variety of books for at-home browsing. Contact the library by email at info@bowenlibrary.ca or call (604) 947-9788.

Find out about requesting medical equipment on our Med Shed page.
