The Sisters Library features 8,300 square feet of space, all housed in an exterior design that includes a partial wraparound porch with the Western appearance for which Sisters is famous. Though the building itself was constructed in 2005, Sisters has a tradition of library service that goes back decades.

In addition to a robust selection of books, music, and DVDs, the library also offers public computers as well as children’s story times and adult programming in the community meeting room. The interior design features vaulted ceilings and a gas fireplace that creates a cozy reading area. Rotating art and quilt exhibitions reflect the talent of the local community. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    Look at photos and hear tales from an urban explorer capturing a few of the many ghost towns in Oregon.

    According to some historians, Oregon has the most ghost towns of any state at about 200 sites. Since some of those former communities are described as "remnants," I think it would be pretty difficult if not impossible to visit them all. But as an urban explorer, I am certainly trying. About 50% of the hobby is photography, so in this program, I will be sharing some of my favorite shots as well as a little info about the locations, without actually giving the locations. That's because the other 50% of the hobby is gatekeeping. Not with the express goal of keeping people from exploring all together, but just to keep the numbers down to people who actually want to put in the literal footwork of finding these "bandos". Too many people = "No Trespassing" signs, and we're not fans of those. So if you don't want to drive aimlessly for hours in the hopes of spotting something you read about in a private group on Facebook but would still like to peek into an abandoned homestead from the 1860's, join me.

    Ash Knotts started her career in B&E (breaking and entering) at the tender age of 16, when her dad helped her break into a cemetery at midnight in the pursuit of a local secret society. From there, she pursued abandoned farmsteads in her native Ohio and, eventually, entire ghost towns when she relocated to Oregon. Ash was asked by Fonthill Media to write a novella/photography book about her experiences exploring ghost towns in 2019. With an excuse to travel and a lot of creative license, she penned Abandoned Oregon: Ghost Towns of the Painted Hills and Beyond. She currently lives in Portland, Or, where she divides her time between restoring vintage furniture and clothes, building terrariums, writing scripts for horror movies with friends, and exploring the wild west with her elderly dog, Sooki.

    10:00 AM - Saturday - Metolius Preserve – Deschutes Land Trust * Registration Required

    Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Jane Meissner for a fall colors hike at the Metolius Preserve. Registration is required. Registered participants will receive meet-up instructions prior to the event. Registration closes Wednesday, September 29.

    Per Oregon Health Authority (OHA) guidelines, all participants (regardless of vaccination status) must bring and wear a face mask during the walk or hike (as soon as you exit your vehicle). Face masks must fit tight to the face, be worn over the nose and mouth, and must be secure enough to stay on during your entire walk or hike. Per OHA guidelines, face shields are not considered a face mask. The Land Trust will have extra face masks for use as needed.

    This is an easy ~3 mile hike on dirt trails. From ponderosa pine forest to lush creek-side corridors, the Metolius basin boasts a unique combination of wetter plants from the west side of the Cascades along with the drier eastern Cascade vegetation. We'll explore this fascinating transition zone while enjoying golden bracken fern and larch and searching for scarlet vine maple.

    The Deschutes Land Trust a local non-profit organization dedicated to conserving land in Central Oregon. Since 1995 the Land Trust has been working to conserve and care for the lands and waters that sustain our region. They envision a future of strong and healthy natural and human communities—where we work together to conserve and care for the lands that make Central Oregon an incredible place to live, work, and grow. The Land Trust protects more than 17,523 acres in our region for today and tomorrow.
