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.

    Discuss "All You Can Ever Know" by Nicole Chung.

    Nicole Chung was born severely premature, placed for adoption by her Korean parents, and raised by a white family in a sheltered Oregon town. She was told her biological parents had made the ultimate sacrifice in the hope of giving her a better life, that forever feeling slightly out of place was her fate as a transracial adoptee. But Nicole grew up facing prejudice her adoptive family couldn't see, and wondered if the story she'd been told was the whole truth. Here Chung tells of her search for the people who gave her up, and chronicles the repercussions of unearthing painful family secrets.

    Learn why one local bat species is so difficult to find for wildlife researchers and how the public can get involved in an innovative citizen science research project with OSU-Cascades' Northwestern Bat Hub. Presented by bat researcher and Volunteer Coordinator Sara Rose.

    Central Oregon is a haven for outdoor recreation and nature enthusiasts. Many of us feel comfortable in and knowledgeable about our local habitats, but there is so much that we don’t see and don’t truly understand. Some of our most elusive and misunderstood neighbors are bats. Being small, swift, and nocturnal, they are easy to miss as they move across the landscape. Though wildlife researchers have some amazing tools to find and study bats, one local species remains particularly elusive: the spotted bat. And so the Northwestern Bat Hub is turning to our community for help. This presentation will explain why these odd and adorable animals are so difficult to find and how the public can get involved and contribute to an innovative research project.

    Sara Rose is the Volunteer Coordinator for the Spotted Bat Project, a citizen science project hosted by the Northwestern Bat Hub, as part of the HERS Lab at OSU – Cascades. She also helps to coordinate and conduct large-scale bat monitoring and research across the Pacific Northwest. Sara received her B.S. from OSU- Cascades in natural resources fish and wildlife conservation. Before joining the Bat Hub, she completed wildlife research internships with the Deschutes National Forest and with Cardiff University at their research center in Malaysia. In her spare time, Sara has participated in Sierra Nevada red fox and golden eagle research. She currently helps run a local community organization, Central Oregon Womxn in Conservation.

    Macramé - a seventies tradition with a modern day “twist.” Learn to make a plant hanger of your very own that will add charm and nostalgia to any room....or the perfect gift!

    After years of traveling and living abroad, Brook Blue moved to Oregon where her curiosity in macramé led her to her first workshop. She was immediately intrigued by the practice, finding a deep connection with both the utilitarian and creative aspects that it encompasses. Through her macramé business, bold and blue, she aims to create visual experiences in the spaces we occupy. Both the materials and the compositions she chooses for the pieces she makes seek to invoke timeless nostalgia while presenting it in a contemporary form. Brook loves the idea of using an ancient craft to create art that exists both in the physical and conceptual realms. *oo*
