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.

    Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children® is a 2.5-hour interactive training program providing participants with 5 steps to better protect children from sexual abuse. It gives adults tools for recognizing the signs of sexual abuse, responding to suspicions, and gives simple ways to minimize opportunities for abuse in organizations and in our community. This training is ideal for any adult in our community who has interactions with children.

    KIDS Center is a medical model Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) providing child abuse evaluations that include a head-to-toe medical exam, child-friendly forensic interview, family advocacy, and mental health services to children and families impacted by abuse. In addition, our services include prevention programs to help teach adults in our community how to better protect children from abuse.

    Children are referred for a KIDS Center evaluation by one of four community partners including law enforcement, DHS Child Welfare, medical providers, and licensed mental health professionals. Children and families can engage in KIDS Center advocacy and mental health services without participating in an evaluation. All of KIDS Center services are provided at no cost.

    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!

    For more information about early literacy and how to talk, read, rhyme, play and write with your child, visit: https://www.deschuteslibrary.org/kids/literacy

    Enjoy beautiful harp music performed by Rebecca Smith.

    On March 17 2020 I dressed in green, loaded up my harp in my station wagon and hit the road ... and never performed the programs I had planned, because that was the day the state shut down due to what we now know as the Covid-19 Pandemic. In this program I would like to share some of my favorite Irish tunes that I didn't get to play that day: some O'Carolan airs, jigs and slip jigs, and a hornpipe. This music, performed on solo harp, can be melancholy or toe-tapping-- or sometimes both! So pull up a chair and enjoy with me.

    Rebecca Smith went to grade school in Sisters, high school in Redmond, began college in Bend at COCC and completed her music degree at the University of Oregon in Eugene. She began playing the harp classically while studying there, and branched out into other genres since. Her entire career has been dedicated to music as a teacher and performer, both publicly and privately. She is on the faculty of the Cascade School of Music, teaches privately at her Sisters studio, and lives in Sisters with her husband. *oo*
