Quick Links

The La Pine Library opened its doors in 2000 and has served as an important community hub ever since. This 8,099 square foot building is centrally located and is easily accessible to people who live in the city as well as the outlying areas of southern Deschutes County.

An extensive remodel in 2023 created a more open space that welcomes the community with more meeting and study rooms, an engaging children’s discovery space, and a cozy fireplace and reading area. Public computers give customers access to the internet as well as essential software, and fast, free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building. The library’s large community meeting room hosts story times and informative presentations.

    Let’s Talk About It® training provides education and insight on the ages and stages of a child’s development.

    This is an online program. Registration is required. This program will not be recorded.

    Created for parents, caregivers, and those who work with or on behalf of children, our 2-hour Let’s Talk About It® training provides education and insight on the ages and stages of a child’s development, examining each through a social, physical, and developmental lens. The training also provides guidance on how to talk to children about their bodies. You will learn about neurotypical childhood and adolescent development and determine what is considered problematic or inappropriate behavior in children and youth. Participants will go through scenarios to gain hands-on experience on how to handle certain behaviors, situations, or questions that a child may have with the appropriate response while remaining calm. The training is ideal for participants with or who work with children and youth ages 0-17 years old. We recommend taking this class every year.
