The Sisters Library features 8,300 square feet of space, all housed in an exterior design that includes a partial wraparound porch with the Western appearance for which Sisters is famous. Though the building itself was constructed in 2005, Sisters has a tradition of library service that goes back decades.

In addition to a robust selection of books, DVDs, and other materials, the library also offers public computers as well as children’s story times and adult programming in the community meeting room. The interior, which was extensively remodeled in 2023, features vaulted ceilings and an electric fireplace that creates a cozy reading area. A children’s discovery space encourages imaginative play and learning. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    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.

    Learn about the importance of relationships and resiliency.

    This is an online program. Registration is required. This program will not be recorded.

    Part of the Darkness to Light family of trainings, Talking with Children about Safety from Sexual Abuse discusses how talking about personal safety creates a protective bond between parent and child, increasing confidence for both and instilling knowledge that makes children and teens much less vulnerable. In this one (1) hour training, adults will learn the importance of relationships and resiliency, receive examples of how to talk about personal safety with children, and learn how to use everyday opportunities to talk with children about sexual abuse and its prevention.

    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.

    3:00 PM - Wednesday - Community Room

    Create a collage with different mediums that explains what you know about yourself.

    This workshop is inspired by the poem "What I Know About Penny Rooney" from the 2024 youth Novel Idea selection No Matter the Distance. Familiarity with the book is not required!

    If you have or work with a child or adult that is neurodivergent and attending in-person programming is difficult or causes discomfort, please reach out to Erin at erinh@deschuteslibrary.org to request a take-home kit with instructions and materials. We will have a limited number of kits for neurodivergent children as well as autistic or neurodivergent adults that are interested in this program.

    No Matter the Distance tells the story of Penny Rooney, who has cystic fibrosis, which means she has to do breathing treatments to help her lungs work. Some days, it seems like her CF is the only thing Penny knows about herself for sure. From her point of view, everyone around her can make sense of their place in the world. Then during spring break Penny spots something impossible in the creek behind her house: a dolphin, far from its home. As Penny’s CF worsens, she realizes that Rose needs to return to her pod to get better. Will Penny be able to help guide Rose back to the ocean, even if it means losing her friend?

    Cindy Baldwin is the author of the critically acclaimed novels Where the Watermelons Grow, Beginners Welcome, The Stars of Whistling Ridge, and No Matter the Distance (a Junior Library Guild selection). She lives just outside Portland, Oregon, with her husband and daughter. *yani* *ani*
