The Redmond Library opened its doors in 1996. This 21,210 square foot library is housed in the historic Jessie Hill School building—originally built in 1929—and is located in the heart of the city of Redmond.

The Redmond Library has a vast collection of materials for adults, teens, and children, as well as a growing collection of materials in Spanish. English and Spanish-language programs are offered for all ages. A community meeting room serves as a gathering space for programs, lectures, and story times, and a lovely Silent Reading Room provides a quiet place for reading and reflection. Rotating art exhibitions reflect the talent of the local community. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    Hear how industrialization affected the world and U.S. economy and changed economic relationships across classes. Industrialization dramatically changed relationships across the world and U.S. economy. The relationships between workers and their government, workers and managers and different kinds of workers with each other, and even workers and their own families changed profoundly. The very notion of what it meant "to work" forever changed in the 19th century, affecting us powerfully even today. COCC history professor Murray Godfrey will discuss the how the industrialization process occurred in the United States and Pacific Northwest, and how it affected economic relationships across classes.Murray A. Godfrey is Assistant Professor of history in the World Languages and Cultures department at Central Oregon Community College where he has worked since 2012. He received a Master of Arts degree in History from Texas State University specializing in the history of 17th and 18th century North America. Prior to coming to Central Oregon, Murray previously taught for Austin Community College in Austin, TX and Alamo Community College District in San Antonio, TX.

    Review the history and constitutional status of the death penalty in America. Opinions about the death penalty are fueled by emotion and driven by passion. But what do we know about capital punishment? People debating either side agree that “death is different”—because execution is irreversible. Given these ultimate stakes, it makes sense to dial down the volume and enhance our understanding of state administered death. During this program we will be reviewing the history and constitutional status of the death penalty in America. Our conversation, led by James Foster, OSU Professor Emeritus, is designed less to change minds than to deepen insight.Before coming to Bend, James Foster was chair of the Department of Political Science for twelve years (1990-2002) on the Corvallis campus. Foster is a founding faculty member of OSU-Cascades, moving to Bend from Corvallis in 2002. He taught courses on constitutional law, administrative law, gender and law, and American political thought. He has published articles on legal education, book chapters on affirmative action and equality debates, as well as on the Oregon Judicial Branch.He is co-editor of the book "Governing Through Courts" and co-author of the two-volume "Constitutional Law: Cases in Context." Foster has taught twice in London and in St. Petersburg, Russia. He was book review editor of Legal Studies Forum for ten years, and has served as president of the Pacific Coast Association of pre-law studies and the Pacific Northwest Political Science Association. Since leaving full-time teaching in December 2016, Foster is OSU Professor Emeritus.
