The East Bend Library opened its doors in 2011 and is the newest addition to the Deschutes Public Library System. This library is located across from The Forum shopping center right off of Highway 20. The East Bend Library is a rented 8,000 square foot storefront designed by Jim Landin and BRLB/GGL Architects of Bend.

This small and mighty library offers full services such as books, music, and movies; public computers; a community meeting room and hosts library-sponsored lectures and presentations as well as story times; and an interactive Early Learning space for children. Several of the library’s programs for adults and children are offered in English and Spanish. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    Discuss The Invisible Husband of Frick Island by Colleen Oakley. Bring your favorite Winter Read too!

    Sometimes all you need is one person to really see you. Piper Parrish's life on Frick Island -- a tiny, remote town smack in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay -- is nearly perfect. Well, aside from one pesky detail: Her beloved husband, Tom, is dead. When Tom's crab boat capsized and his body wasn't recovered, Piper, rocked to the core, did a most peculiar thing: carried on as if her husband was not only still alive, but right there beside her. She cooked him breakfast, walked him to the docks each morning, met him for their standard weekly night dinner date at the One-Eyed Crab. And what were the townspeople to do but go along with their beloved widowed Piper?

    Discuss Eight Perfect Hours by Lia Louis. Bring your favorite Winter Read too!
    Join via Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/82702962378

    On a snowy evening in March, thirty-something Noelle Butterby is on her way back from an event at her old college when disaster strikes. With a blizzard closing off roads, she finds herself stranded, alone in her car, without food, drink, or a working charger for her phone. All seems lost until Sam Attwood, a handsome American stranger also trapped in a nearby car, knocks on her window and offers assistance. What follows is eight perfect hours together, until morning arrives and the roads finally clear. *zm*
