The Bowen Island Public Library (BIPL) and the Bowen Island Arts Council (BIAC) have joined together with a vision to construct a shared building in Snug Cove. The collaboration will create a hub of energy and activity in an enhanced gathering space in the entrance to Snug Cove. It will spark economic opportunities and celebrate the artistic and intellectual life of Bowen Island. Please join us in creating this exciting new space. For more information, please visit the Annex/Gallery website by clicking here.
