Lois Bewley was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, in 1927 and completed her undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia in 1947.

After working as a librarian and lecturing in the field, Bewley joined the School of Librarianship at UBC in 1969. She worked extensively in various professional associations, including the British Columbia Library Association and the Canadian Library Association.
