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.

    Dr. Sean Munger discusses the history of climate change in the Pacific Northwest.

    How was climate change discovered? Who discovered it, when, and under what circumstances? The history of global warming goes back farther than you might think, and it involves people you might not have expected to find on the front lines of climate change—many of them connected to the Northwest. From Lewis and Clark squinting at antique thermometers to UW scientists drilling holes in Arctic ice, the Northwest and its people have been a crucial part of the story of climate change.

    Dr. Sean Munger is a historian, attorney and consultant specializing in the intersection of law and climate change. After practicing law in the Portland, Oregon area for many years, he returned to school to study environmental history, and later founded Centric Law, the consulting division of the Rose Law Firm of Lake Oswego, Oregon. He represents clients in the sustainability, renewable energy and climate change community. He also speaks and teaches on subjects involving history, climate change and the law.

    Sean is an internationally published historian, with a focus on the history of climate and climate change. He writes and produces a historical podcast, Second Decade, on the Recorded History Podcast Network, and he also teaches online history classes on a wide variety of subjects. While at the University of Oregon, Sean developed and taught an innovative course on the history of climate change. His work has been featured in academic and legal journals in the United States and Europe. He is also a novelist, having published in the horror and science fiction genres.

    Sean holds a Ph.D. in environmental history from the University of Oregon and a J.D. from Tulane Law School.

    Explore both Leonardo da Vinci's limitations, and his extraordinary gifts.

    Bend author Michael Lankford explores Leonardo da Vinci in this presentation based on Lankford's new book "Becoming Leonardo--an Exploded View of the Life of Leonardo da Vinci."

    How it is we know Leonardo? Discover the real evidence and the actual man who emerges once we take a new look at one of history's most enigmatic and brilliant men.

    "Becoming Leonardo" reveals what it was like to live in the 15th century, and da Vinci's life as a social outsider.

    Lankford, who joined COCC in 2006 and has taught creative writing, creative nonfiction and academic composition as a part-time instructor for the college, has been fascinated with da Vinci since high school. His habit of exhaustively reading material by and about one particular individual—which started at age 20 when he lived in a remote Oklahoma farmhouse and was consumed with Tolstoy—doesn't normally lead to writing a book of his own, he admitted. A biography he read on da Vinci some five years ago changed that. "Becoming Leonardo" is a Wall Street Journal 2017 Book of the Year A Spectator (UK) 2017 Book of the Year.

    Books for sale, Q&A to follow.
