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.

Know WWI: A Soldier Returns
Tuesday, August 05, 2014
6:00 PM

Brooks Room

The day after September 11, 2001, Sean Davis--18 months out of uniform--strode into the Oregon National Guard's recruiting office and reenlisted. When his platoon was torn apart by an ambush, Sean was shipped back to the United States bruised, broken and wracked with guilt.

Sean's book, "The Wax Bullet War: Chronicles of a Soldier & Artist," offers a glimpse into the life of a soldier in the twenty-first century--a life that is in some ways similar and in some ways dramatically different from the life of a soldier returning from the Great War. In his memoir Sean says, "A few events were changed [for the book], but the war stuff is true: we were shot at or mortared every day, many people died, and we helped who we could."

This event is free and open to all. No registration is required.
