Quick Links

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.

    Anna (Melendez) Johnson discusses the history and traditions of this important holiday celebration.

    In this talk presented by Arizona native, former Bendite and Dia de los Muertos enthusiast Anna (Melendez) Johnson, discover the true meaning behind the traditions of this vibrant and colorful Latin American celebration honoring our beloved who are no longer with us. This is not worshipping the dead; this is a celebration of loved ones and their glorious contribution to who we are today.

    Arizona native Anna Johnson became fascinated by the Dia de los Muertos celebration, regalia and makeup eight years ago when she lived in Oregon. When in college she performed pantomime professionally, so it is not surprising that Anna dresses up and attends Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Arizona. She has won contests for her Catrina look and enjoys taking photos with festival attendees.

    Anna has attended Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Mesa and Sedona and looks forward to the day when we can all gather again to celebrate traditionally. An Arizona State University broadcast journalism graduate, Anna also studied theatre and public communications in college. With over 20 years of experience as a public information specialist and community theatre volunteer (on and off stage), Anna is at her best when learning about or visiting historic buildings and believes everything with age havalue and has a great story to tell. She currently lives in Goodyear, Arizona and is a writer and editor for the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s wildlife conservation magazine Arizona Wildlife Views. *oo*

    This program will be available Tuesdays and Thursdays via YouTube at https://bit.ly/2Yaurca

    Join community librarians for songs, rhymes, stories and fun!

    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!

    Dosa and Other Spontaneous Fermentations of Beans and Grains
    Join Fermentation Revivalist Sandor Katz in a live demonstration and discussion of fermenting beans and grains.

    Fermentation Revivalist Sandor Katz demonstrates simple traditional techniques for using fermentation to make beans and grains more nutritious and delicious. Dosas are South Indian crepes made from a fermented batter of rice and lentils. Sandor will demonstrate the process for these start to finish, and also show and discuss other similar methods for fermenting beans and grains.

    Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. His books Wild Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation, along with the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught around the world, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, the New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” Sandor is the recipient of a James Beard award and other honors.

    Learn to brew your own kombucha.

    Learn the basic kombucha brewing process with Carly King. From growing a Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY), to primary and secondary fermentation, Carly will also demonstrate how to store your extra SCOBYs and what to do if you want to stop brewing for a while and then pick it back up. Kombucha is a scientific art and although brewing kombucha seems tricky and scary, it is actually a fairly simple process as long as you follow some crucial guidelines. There is a lot of freedom when brewing kombucha from the flavors you create to how long the brewing process takes. Experimenting with the basic steps is how you make something new and unique!

    Carly King is a Junior vocal performance major at Southern Oregon University. She has been brewing kombucha since late March of 2020. She is now brewing an average of five gallons of kombucha every two weeks. Her kombucha has become very popular with her friends and family.
