Downtown Bend Library

Bend Public LibraryThe Downtown Bend Library was designed by Thomas Hacker and Associates of Portland, Oregon. The 40,000 square foot library opened in October 1998, and is conveniently located adjacent to downtown Bend.

The beautiful exposed beams and high ceiling on the second floor, complemented with generous windows looking east, gives an airy and open feeling.


Please visit our Circulation Department on the ground floor to get a library card or discuss your account. Our Children’s area is also on the ground floor, and is always bustling with activity, A trip upstairs will get you to our Adult and Teen materials, our public computers, and free wifi.

Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives—we share 98.8 percent of their DNA—and new research continues to shed light on just how similar we are. While genetic evidence suggests that the ancestors of humans and chimpanzees diverged roughly four million years ago, many people still feel a connection with these highly intelligent animals. Our friends at Chimps Inc. will join us at the Downtown Bend Library to lead an engaging and informative exploration of chimp biology and behavior as part of our science-themed Summer Reading Program.
