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.

    10:00 AM - Thursday -

    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!

    A link to view this program online will be available beginning Thursday, October 1st at 5:00 p.m.

    Go on a lively tour of historical traditions of magic with University of Oregon Professor and medievalist, Martha Bayless, Ph.D.

    This lively presentation will cover historical traditions of magic, including some that may be familiar from Harry Potter and some that are still with us in modern life. Among these is the surprising history of Hallowe’en— almost certainly not what you’ve heard in the media! — as well as answers to questions like why cats and not dogs were supposed to conspire with witches, why shoes are associated with weddings, and why we throw coins in fountains.

    Martha Bayless is a medievalist who specializes in the popular culture of the Middle Ages. She has a PhD from Cambridge University and is Professor of English and Director of Folklore and Public Culture at the University of Oregon.

    Discuss "Calypso" by David Sedaris. Click the link above or join at https://zoom.us/j/157999301 or with Meeting ID 157 999 301

    Physical copies are available first-come first-serve at the Downtown Bend Customer Service Desk. Additional formats can be placed on hold: https://dpl.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1700809094

    When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, David Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it's impossible to take a vacation from yourself. Sedaris sets his powers of observation toward middle age and mortality, that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future.
