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.
