Library of Things

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.

The library’s vibrant children’s area includes an interactive Early Learning Station, while the dedicated teen space offers the perfect location for teens to browse and connect with one another. The adult materials are interspersed with quiet, relaxed reading areas. The library’s community meeting room hosts story times and informative presentations. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    Get help with your legal information questions.

    Deschutes Public Library hosts the law library for Deschutes County. A print collection and robust legal databases are housed at the Downtown Bend Library, but we recognize that it’s difficult for many to make the journey into Bend. Instead, law library staff will be available at La Pine Library on the first Thursday of the month from 4-6pm to assist with legal information questions.

    Law Library Office Hours provides research training, legal reference assistance, and access to a variety of legal information resources. We can help identify relevant legal research materials, provide instruction on effective use of resources, and provide referrals to appropriate agencies or organizations.

    Library staff may not engage in the practice of law, and are prohibited from interpreting legal materials or giving legal advice.

    Learn about pika populations with an OSU-Cascades researcher.

    American pikas are charismatic inhabitants of talus and rocky outcroppings. Many findings suggest that climate change poses a significant threat to the species due to increasing temperatures and declining snowpack in alpine habitats. However, modern discoveries of pikas in low-elevation lava flows offer a contrasting perspective. Come learn about what pikas are, observed behavioral differences between the two distinct habitats, and the potential future of pika persistence in central Oregon.

    Corrinne Oedekerk is a graduate student at Oregon State University and a research assistant for the Human and Ecosystem Resiliency and Sustainability (HERS) Lab at OSU-Cascades. She has been a research technician on the American Pika Monitoring Project for three years, examining pika occupancy in low-elevation lava flows in national parks and monuments throughout the intermountain west. Corrinne graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources from OSU-Cascades, where she became increasingly passionate about wildlife conservation.
