Quick Links

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.

    Murray Godfrey discusses the legacy of and the efforts to remove Civil War monuments.

    As of 2020, there are more than 1,700 public monuments, including over 700 statues of varying size, commemorating the Confederate States of America or its prominent leaders. COCC professor Murray Godfrey will discuss the "Lost Cause" interpretation of Civil War history that largely inspired the construction of these monuments, its lasting legacy, and the efforts in various parts of the country to remove them.

    Murray A. Godfrey is history professor and chair of 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.

    Discussing "Braver Than You Think: Around the World on the Trip of My (mother's) Lifetime" by Maggie Downs online via Zoom. (Available on Hoopla) "zm"
    Please join with the Zoom link below.
    https://zoom.us/j/99156422361Braver Than You Think is the life-affirming story of how Downs, newly married and established in her career as a journalist, quits her job, sells her belongings, and embarks on the solo trip of a lifetime: Her mother's. Over the course of one year backpacking through seventeen countries - visiting all the places her mother, struck with early-onset Alzheimer's disease, cannot visit herself - Maggie faces some of the world's most exotic locales while confronting the slow loss of her mother and the close bond they shared. Interweaving travelogue with memories of her family, Braver Than You Think takes the reader hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, whitewater rafting down the Nile, volunteering at a monkey sanctuary in Bolivia, praying at an ashram in India, and fleeing the Arab Spring in Egypt. By embarking on a global journey, Downs embraces what it means to make every moment count - traveling around the globe and home again, losing a parent while discovering the world.

    Take a look at the evolving illustrations of a beloved literary character. A link to view this program will be available on July 9 at 7:00 p.m.

    Although many people associate "Alice in Wonderland" with the illustrations of John Tenniel or the animation of Walt Disney, Alice is actually one of the most fertile texts for illustration, at least in the world of children's literature. A consideration of these illustrations over time reveals fascinating shifts in social values, attitudes about children, and conceptualizations of Alice herself.

    Kristin R. Dorsey is an Assistant Professor in Humanities at Central Oregon Community College, where she teaches writing and literature courses as well as writing classes and workshops for COCC's Continuing Education program. Outside of the college, she runs writing workshops for teens and works with a variety of Central Oregon writing groups.
