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, which is also available for after-hours reservations, hosts story times and informative presentations.

    Discuss Ghost Music by An Yu.
    Join via Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/89423421831

    An Yu's enchanting and contemplative novel of music and mushrooms follows a former concert pianist searching for the truth about a vanished musician. For three years, Song Yan has filled the emptiness of her Beijing apartment with the tentative notes of her young piano students. She gave up on her own career as a concert pianist many years ago, but her husband Bowen, an executive at a car company, has long rebuffed her pleas to have a child. He resists even when his mother arrives from the southwestern Chinese region of Yunnan and begins her own campaign for a grandchild. As tension in the household rises, it becomes harder for Song Yan to keep her usual placid demeanor, especially since she is troubled by dreams of a doorless room she can't escape, populated only by a strange orange mushroom. When a parcel of mushrooms native to her mother-in-law's province is delivered seemingly by mistake, Song Yan sees an opportunity to bond with her, and as the packages continue to arrive every week, the women stir-fry and grill the mushrooms, adding them to soups and noodles. When a letter arrives in the mail from the sender of the mushrooms, Song Yan's world begins to tilt further into the surreal.

    Books available at the Sisters Library or email paigeb@deschuteslibrary.org to request a book. *zm*
