About Branch

The Bowen Branch opened in its current location on December 28, 1912. The branch is named in honor of Herbert Bowen, an early member of the Library Commission. It boasts a Carnegie library of English collegiate architecture with exterior walls of buff Ohio stone and red vitrified brick. Inside the library is a Pewabic tile fireplace.

This library provides Spanish reference resources for adults and children (reading materials and cassettes); English as a second language resources for adult and juvenile Spanish-speakers (books and cassettes); Spanish language indexes (magazine article summaries); and a Latino Studies Collection (books in English of Latin interest). Librarians and support staff are available to assist you.


Street parking is available.
