History
The Bowen Branch opened in its present location on December 28, 1912. The branch is named in honor of 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.

In addition to student financial aid forms, a copy machine, and computers for public use, 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.
