Expanded Hours Bring Greater Community Access to Deschutes Public Library Locations

Starting August 1, Deschutes Public Library customers will have 34 additional hours each week during which time they can access library buildings and services. The increased hours—which include earlier opening and/or later closing times at various libraries in the district—will allow customers of all ages to use the library at a wider variety of times, something asked for by people in the Central Oregon community.

 

“During the last two years we engaged more than 1,500 community members across Deschutes County,” says library director Todd Dunkelberg. “What we found is that people overwhelmingly asked for more hours at their libraries, especially in Bend and Redmond.”

 

The new hours are:

 

Downtown Bend Library | 601 NW Wall Street, Bend

Monday–Thursday: 9:00 a.m.–9:00 p.m.

Friday–Saturday: 9:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.

Sunday: noon–5:00 p.m.

 

East Bend Library | 62080 Dean Swift Road, Bend

Monday–Saturday: 9:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.

Sunday: closed

Tuesday–Saturday: 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.

Redmond Library | 827 SW Deschutes Avenue, Redmond

Monday–Thursday: 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Friday–Saturday: 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Sunday: closed

All of the library’s digital resources, such as eBooks and audiobooks as well as streaming movies, are available to customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from anywhere they happen to be with an internet connection. Digital resources are accessible on the library’s website at www.deschuteslibrary.org, or via convenient apps, such as Hoopla, Libby, OverDrive, and Kanopy.
