- ASK A LIBRARIAN
The Deschutes Public Library provides a wide variety of materials which represent many points of view on topics of interest to the community.
The library invites individuals to apply their own personal and family values when selecting items to browse, borrow, or use online, and encourages parents to be involved with their own children’s choices. To assist in the selection of materials, the library organizes the collection according to age and interest levels, but interests, appropriateness, and ability vary widely. Please contact staff for assistance in making selections that are best for you. We provide the choices so that you may make the decisions for you and your family.
