The Sisters Library will resume operations in mid-October. A Grand Opening Celebration will take place on October 28 from noon – 2:00 p.m. (ribbon cutting at 2:15 p.m.).

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, music, and DVDs, the library also offers public computers as well as children’s story times and adult programming in the community meeting room. The interior design features vaulted ceilings and a gas fireplace that creates a cozy reading area. Rotating art and quilt exhibitions reflect the talent of the local community. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    What are the cultural impacts of a language being lost?

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the “Register Here for Online Access” link above. This program will be recorded.

    What are the cultural impacts of a language being lost? Furthermore, do these impacts differ when the language is intentionally and purposely eradicated? What happens to a people when their language is restored? Find the answers to these questions and more as we learn about Native American languages as part of the “Know Language” series sponsored by the Deschutes Public Library.

    This talk will focus on the Klamath Tribes and the resurrection of what was once described as a “dead language”.

    Gabriann “Abby” Hall, an enrolled member of the Klamath Tribe, will describe some history of Native American languages and terms. She will also share experiences and stories related to her tribe’s loss of language through federal assimilation policy and the current journey the tribe and members are on to restore their language. Learn what this restoration means from an educational standpoint as well as cultural and spiritual perspective. Please join us to celebrate the journey of “Ho Mas Gi” meaning “To be that way again” in the Klamath Language.

    Gabriann Hall is the granddaughter of Marilyn Mitchell Hall, who was a survivor of Canyonville Bible Academy in Oregon and Haskell Indian School in Lawrence, Kansas. She is the daughter of Lawrence and Ann Hall from Fort Klamath, Oregon. Gabriann is an enrolled member of the Klamath Tribes and volunteers with the Tribe on education-related issues. She was born and raised in the Fort Klamath Valley and attended school in Chiloquin, Oregon. She then went to Oregon State University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Ethnic Studies, a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies, and later a Master of Arts in Teaching. She currently resides in Central Oregon and teaches Ethnic Studies and Native Studies at Central Oregon Community College. Teaching diverse history is a passion of hers. She believes that understanding the impacts of the past on the present is instrumental to successfully navigating the world today. *zm*
