The Bowden Public Library is a member of the Parkland Library System, a regional library system that helps libraries provide the best possible service for library users. Located beside the Town Office at Bay 2, 2101 - 20 Avenue, the library is also online with the Alberta Library. This means that with your library card, you can use any library in Parkland, or any of up to 300 libraries around the province that are participating in the Alberta Public Library Electronic Network. The books you want to borrow will be sent to and can be returned to the Bowden Public Library.

You will also be able to access your library and the Alberta Library through the internet using your library card and PIN number. This will also give you access to a number of databases, such as magazines and journals, newspapers and newswires - without a trip to the library.

Community Access Program at the Bowden Library

Community Access Program logoThe Community Access Program (CAP) is a Government of Canada initiative adminstered by Industry Canada, that aims to provide Canadians with affordable public access to the Internet and the skills they need to use it effectively. With the combined efforts of the federal, provincial and territorial governments, community groups, social agencies, libraries, schools, volunteer groups and the business community, CAP helps Canadians, wherever they live, take advantage of emerging opportunities in the new global knowledge-based economy. Under CA, public locations like schools, libraries and community centres acts as "on-ramps" to the Information Highway, and provide computer support and training.

The Bowden Public Library has four computers that can be used for the internet and e-mail as well as many programs of interest to the public. Come in and check them out. Need help? The knowledgeable staff will help you get started, or find what you need.
