The Downtown Bend Library was designed by Thomas Hacker and Associates of Portland, Oregon. The two-story, 38,855-square-foot library opened in 1998 and features exposed beams and high ceilings, complemented with eastward-facing windows, looking over Bend’s civic square.

The library’s large children’s area, located on the ground floor, includes an interactive Early Learning Space. You’ll also find a large community space, the Brooks Room, on the first floor that hosts story times for children as well as cultural programs for teens and adults. The second floor of the library houses teen and adult print and digital materials, as well as public computers, a meeting room, and reading and study spaces. Rotating art exhibitions reflect the talent of the local community. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.
