History of Bowness Library

Bowness Library was added to the Calgary Public Library system in 1964, when the town of Bowness was amalgamated into the city of Calgary. Initially located in the local community recreation hall, Bowness Library moved to a spot in the Bowness Shopping Centre in 1970.

The northwest Library moved again in 1979 to a larger leased location, at 7930 Bowness Road. Bowness Library moved to its current location in 2012, in the old Bow Cycle Building at 6532 Bowness Road.
