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 99 Nights in Logar by Jamil Jan Kochai.

    Location update: Instead of Zoom, this meeting will be in-person at an outdoor location in close proximity to the Downtown Bend Library. Contact Rya Fennewald for location details.

    "A coming-of-age story about one boy's journey across contemporary Afghanistan to find and bring home the family dog, blending the grit and immediacy of voice-driven fiction like We Need New Names with the mythmaking of One Thousand and One Nights. Twelve-year-old Marwand's memories from his previous visit to Afghanistan six years ago center on his contentious relationship with Budabash, the terrifying but beloved dog who guards his extended family's compound in Logar. Eager to find an ally in this place that's meant to be "home," Marwand approaches Budabash the way he would any dog on his American suburban block--and the results are disastrous: Marwand loses a finger and Budabash escapes. The resulting search for the family dog is an expertly told adventure, a ninety-nine-night quest that sends Marwand and his cousins across the landscape of Logar. Moving between celebrations and tragedies, deeply humorous and surprisingly tender, 99 Nights in Logar is a vibrant exploration of the power of stories--the ones we tell each other, and the ones we find ourselves in"-- Provided by publisher.

    10:00 AM - Saturday - Library South Patio * Registration Required

    This is a live, in-person, outdoor event.

    Explore the generative aspects of poetry and fortune-telling at this salon and poetry reading.

    This event is part of a mini pop-up book tour featuring Emily Carr’s Tarot Romance and fourth poetry collection, Name Your Bird Without A Gun (Spork Press, 2020). Equal parts poetry reading, writing workshop, and fortune-telling salon, this event is designed to invite your imaginations to spark off each other’s, to jolt you into poems you didn’t know you had inside you, and to introduce you to the generative intersections of creativity and fortune-telling. Each aspect of the event will be curated with your specific, personal, and important experience in mind.

    When you RSVP, you will be invited to share a question - personal, professional, work-related, family-related, romance-related - to ask Emily. Emily will use these questions to choreograph the poetry reading, interactive writing activities, and fortune-telling.

    This salon is open to writers of all levels and genres, including folks who don’t yet (know how to) self-identify as writers. Come prepared to experience your creativity as a catalyst for radical acts of connection - even and especially in these disconnecting times! Bring open minds, open ears, and open hearts - along with something to write with and on - and leave with inspiration for your creative endeavors, whether those happen on or off the page.

    Come for the magic and stay for the poetry!

    Emily Carr is a Tarot storyteller, ransom artist, divorce poet, and ecofeminist teacher. After she got an MFA in poetry from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, she took a doctorate in ecopoetics at the University of Calgary. These days, she's Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at New College of Florida. Her McSweeney's collection, whosoever has let a minotaur enter them, or a sonnet-,, inspired a beer of the same name, brewed at the Ale Apothecary in Bend, Oregon. Emily's Tarot romance, Name Your Bird Without A Gun, is now available from Spork. Emily has published essays on storytelling and the Tarot in American Poetry Review (September/October 2019) and the Writer's Chronicle (Spring 2020).

    This program will be available Tuesdays 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!

    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

    Listen to the warm Americana of Corinne Sharlet.

    With bone-deep lyrics and a magnetic, haunting voice, Portland based singer/songwriter, Corinne Sharlet, crafts a warm Americana sound. Emotive and alluring, Corinne’s music captures the imagination like the high deserts of Central Oregon where she was raised. Drawing comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Corinne writes unusual melodies and chord progressions that give her version of folk music new life. Corinne’s set features songs from her forthcoming debut album, A Lovely Future, set to be released at the end of September.

    Singer/songwriter, Corinne Sharlet grew up in Bend, performing in local community theater and writing songs as she wandered around the High Desert. Corinne’s music is ethereal yet grounded in richness, capturing the sound of the landscape of Central Oregon. Corinne’s songwriting is introspective and often delves into the depths of the human psyche. Based on her lyrical themes, it comes as no surprise that Corinne also works as a psychotherapist, trained in pioneering voice work called Voice Movement Therapy. Inspired by voice teacher, Alfred Wolfsohn’s discoveries about how to use singing to help people heal from PTSD after WWI, Voice Movement therapy teaches people how to explore the depths of their own voice to heal from trauma and other mental health struggles.
