Library of Things

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.

The library’s vibrant children’s area includes an interactive Early Learning Station, while the dedicated teen space offers the perfect location for teens to browse and connect with one another. The adult materials are interspersed with quiet, relaxed reading areas. The library’s community meeting room hosts story times and informative presentations. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    Discover the art of paper folding and how intricate it can be!

    Join us for an Origami workshop to create fun traditional origami items. Start with some basic folds and easier origami items like the Samurai helmet, balloon, heart, and jumping frog and then work your way to the origami crane - the most iconic of origami animals.

    Leela Morimoto has been folding Origami for almost 30 years - starting with cranes, houses, and balloons. Over time she became enamored with modular origami and spent all of her free time folding to create every combination of shapes possible. This led to designing a custom shape, now her most popular line of jewelry (she even has a patent pending).

    Leela says "dynamic textures, colors, and patterns surround us every day: what better medium to capture this fascination than in paper, where options are almost endless!" She has made blueprints into earrings, art prints into night lights, and even translated origami shapes into 2-D silhouettes to cut out of acrylic and bamboo plywood.

    Get help with your legal information needs.

    Deschutes Public Library hosts the law library for Deschutes County. A print collection and robust legal databases are housed at the Downtown Bend Library, but we recognize that it’s difficult for many to make the journey into Bend. Instead, law library staff will be available at La Pine Library on the first Thursday of the month from 4-6pm to assist with legal information questions.

    Law Library Office Hours provides research training, legal reference assistance, and access to a variety of legal information resources. We can help identify relevant legal research materials, provide instruction on effective use of resources, and provide referrals to appropriate agencies or organizations.

    Library staff may not engage in the practice of law, and are prohibited from interpreting legal materials or giving legal advice.

    3:00 PM - Friday - Meeting Room

    Explore Japanese culture through its greatest pop culture export- manga.

    Dr. Holt will discuss how we can greatly understand Japanese culture with the country's greatest pop culture export, its comic books (manga). Like the United States, Japan has a long history of comic-book making, one that is in fact far more successful than what's seen in American markets. Although manga stories and series can be immensely satisfying entertainment, they also create pathways to know and learn about Japanese culture. When do Japanese people bow? How deeply do they bow? What do Japanese people love to eat? Why do they love food so much? How do Japanese people communicate with each other, with strangers, with completely different strangers? How do they use body language? How do they use sometimes the most minimal communication cues to convey deep concerns? What about tattoos? Bathing habits? Sleeping habits? Manga, as a visual-textual medium, can help explain--by demonstration!--many of these questions and much larger ones, and, manga does it all so beautifully. Join Professor Holt as he explains Japanese culture with the hit LGBTQ manga My Brother's Husband (Ototo no otto [Vol. 1]), Tezuka Osamu, Mizuki Shigeru, and more!

    Dr. Holt received his Ph.D. in Japanese Literature from the University of Washington. His research interests include modern Japanese poetry and children’s literature. He wrote his dissertation on the works of Miyazawa Kenji, arguably one of the most important figures in modern Japanese literature. At PSU, Dr. Holt teaches Japanese literature and film as well as upper-division Japanese language courses. His secondary research interests include manga and Japanese Buddhism.
