Quick Links

The East Bend Library opened its doors in 2011 and is the newest addition to the Deschutes Public Library System. This library is located across from The Forum shopping center right off of Highway 20. The East Bend Library is a rented 8,000 square foot storefront designed by Jim Landin and BRLB/GGL Architects of Bend.

This small and mighty library offers full services such as books, music, and movies; public computers; a community meeting room and hosts library-sponsored lectures and presentations as well as story times; and an interactive Early Learning space for children. Several of the library’s programs for adults and children are offered in English and Spanish. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    This is a chance for struggling readers to read one on one with a dog and her trainer. Kids will have the opportunity to read with Callie, a Pet Partners certified therapy dog for 15 minutes. Parents, we will ask that you wait outside the room. This gives readers the opportunity to feel most comfortable about reading read without being overheard by too many people.

    You can bring your own book, or choose one of ours. We will have a selection of books in a variety of reading levels available for readers to choose from.

    Registration is recommended but we will fill any empty spots with last minute walk-ins. We have room for 4 readers. Registered attendees will be assigned a time 15 minutes before the event beings. First come-first serve. Please make sure you are on time.

    Enjoy the harmonies of the Holidays.

    The Sisters Jazz Choir is an elite choir of 16 high school students auditioned out of the Sisters School District Choral Program. The district choral program has over 100 participants. The members of the Jazz Choir have earned their spots in the Jazz Choir by demonstrating leadership in the district choral program and by successfully completing a difficult vocal audition. They are directed by Rick Johnson with the assistance of piano player Julie Cash.

    The choir performs and fundraises throughout the year to earn money to support their annual performing tour. Last year, the choir traveled to Disneyland to perform in the park and take performing arts and music classes. This year, they are performing in many locations around the Central Oregon Coast – including Newport, Lincoln City, and Depoe Bay.
