The project to redesign and refresh the Bowmanville Branch has begun! We want to create a more flexible space that better serves the needs of our community and members.

Public input will be an integral part of the design process. Members of the public, staff, Board members, Municipal Council, community organizations, and other stakeholders will have multiple opportunities to provide their suggestions and feedback. 

Drop in to this public brainstorming session to learn more about the project and help shape your Library! Bring your ideas and suggestions for the layout, areas, and services YOU want to see in your redesigned branch!

An online survey about the project is also available.
