Hot-To Fest

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.

    Historic site tours and Pioneer fun for all ages at the oldest home site in Deschutes County.

    All ages are invited to celebrate Redmond Park and Recreation District’s* special event at the historic Tetherow Homestead. Learn about the history of the homestead and river crossing, and our plans for the coming restoration. There will be games, a Pioneer general store, storytelling, and mountain man skills for kids, as well as site tours, Central Oregon oral histories, and an info about genealogy research.

    Now owned by Redmond Area Parks and Recreation Department, the Tetherow Homestead is the site of the oldest residential structure in Deschutes County. A.J. Tetherow filed a claim in 1877 and according to historical records he operated a cable ferry on the Deschutes until the first bridge was built in 1885. Over the years there has been a brewery, a blacksmith shop, and an inn.
    The day will include tours of the property, demonstrations of heritage skills, crafts, and games.
