The La Pine Library opened its doors in 2000 and has served as an important community hub ever since. This 8,099 square foot building is centrally located and is easily accessible to people who live in the city as well as the outlying areas of southern Deschutes County.

An extensive remodel in 2023 created a more open space that welcomes the community with more meeting and study rooms, an engaging children’s discovery space, and a cozy fireplace and reading area. Public computers give customers access to the internet as well as essential software, and fast, free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building. The library’s large community meeting room, which is also available for after-hours reservations, hosts story times and informative presentations.

    Let’s Talk About It® training provides education and insight on the ages and stages of a child’s development.

    Registration is required.

    Created for parents, caregivers, and those who work with or on behalf of children, our 2-hour Let’s Talk About It® training provides education and insight on the ages and stages of a child’s development, examining each through a social, physical, and developmental lens. The training also provides guidance on how to talk to children about their bodies. You will learn about neurotypical childhood and adolescent development and determine what is considered problematic or inappropriate behavior in children and youth. Participants will go through scenarios to gain hands-on experience on how to handle certain behaviors, situations, or questions that a child may have with the appropriate response while remaining calm. The training is ideal for participants with or who work with children and youth ages 0-17 years old. We recommend taking this class every year.

    KIDS Center is a medical model Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) providing child abuse evaluations that include a head-to-toe medical exam, child-friendly forensic interview, family advocacy, and mental health services to children and families impacted by abuse. In addition, our services include prevention programs to help teach adults in our community how to better protect children from abuse.

    Children are referred for a KIDS Center evaluation by one of four community partners including law enforcement, DHS Child Welfare, medical providers, and licensed mental health professionals. Children and families can engage in KIDS Center advocacy and mental health services without participating in an evaluation. All of KIDS Center services are provided at no cost.

    Discuss Oh William! by Elizabeth Strout.

    Lucy Barton is a writer, but her ex-husband, William, remains a hard man to read. William, she confesses, has always been a mystery to me. Another mystery is why the two have remained connected after all these years. They just are. So Lucy is both surprised and not surprised when William asks her to join him on a trip to investigate a recently uncovered family secret one of those secrets that rearrange everything we think we know about the people closest to us. What happens next is nothing less than another example of what Hilary Mantel has called Elizabeth Strout's perfect attunement to the human condition. There are fears and insecurities, simple joys and acts of tenderness, and revelations about affairs and other spouses, parents and their children.

    Create your own special tea blend with Metolius Tea.

    See, smell, taste, and play with herbs and spices to make your own unique tea and bring home your very own tea blend. You'll also get to name your tea and decorate your own tea jar label. This workshop is led by 13-year-old Sevi Stahl, the daughter of Metolius Tea's founder.

    All ages welcome. Limited to 10 guests.

    Sevi Stahl, age 13, is about the same age as local business Metolius Tea. Since she was a tiny, precocious little thing, she played in the packing peanuts and made forts with the big boxes the herbs and spices came in. She assisted in blending teas, filling tea jars, labeling bags, welcoming customers, and flitting around the tea factory like a human butterfly. She sat at factory tables for online school during COVID. Most years, the "tea parents" put on kids' tea making workshops for her and the other tea factory kids. Now Sevi enjoys sharing her lifelong love of tea artistry with others.
