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.

    Discuss "Friday Black" by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah.

    An excitement and a wonder: strange, crazed, urgent and funny...The wildly talented Adjei-Brenyah has made these edgy tales immensely charming, via his resolute, heartful, immensely likeable narrators, capable of seeing the world as blessed and cursed at once." -- George Saunders "This book is dark and captivating and essential...A call to arms and a condemnation. Adjei-Brenyah offers powerful prose as parable. The writing in this outstanding collection will make you hurt and demand your hope. Read this book." -- Roxane Gay A piercingly raw debut story collection from a young writer with an explosive voice; a treacherously surreal, and, at times, heartbreakingly satirical look at what it's like to be young and black in America. From the start of this extraordinary debut, Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah's writing will grab you, haunt you, enrage and invigorate you. By placing ordinary characters in extraordinary situations, Adjei-Brenyah reveals the violence, injustice, and painful absurdities that black men and women contend with every day in this country. These stories tackle urgent instances of racism and cultural unrest, and explore the many ways we fight for humanity in an unforgiving world.

    12:00 PM - Thursday - Meeting Room

    Discuss the impact and obligation of using animals in media.

    Animals are everywhere. They inhabit our forests, our fields, our imaginations, our dreams, and our stories. Making appearances in advertisements, television programs, movies, books, internet memes, and art, symbolic animals do tremendous work for us selling goods, services, and ideas, as well as acting as stand-ins for our interests and ideas. Yet, does knowing animals only symbolically impact their lived experiences?

    Debra Merskin, PhD is Professor of Media Studies in the School of Journalism & Communication. Her research focuses on how marginalized groups and individuals are re-presented in media and popular culture. This includes animals. Her third, and most recent book is Seeing Species: Re-presentations of Animals in Media & Popular Culture. Her web site Animalsandmedia.org is a style guide for professional journalists, documentary filmmakers, artists, and those interested in creating accurate and respectful re-presentations of animals.
