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.

    Join community librarians for songs, rhymes, stories and fun!

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    Watch this award-winning documentary on the disability rights movement. Ages 17+.

    This is an online program. The film will be livestreamed via Zoom. Register by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    HOW TO WATCH
    You can watch the livestream of the film from 5:30-7:30pm via Zoom or watch independently using your own Netflix account. ASL interpretation and Closed Captioning will be provided.

    ABOUT THE FILM
    Down the road from Woodstock, a revolution blossomed at a ramshackle summer camp for teenagers with disabilities, transforming their lives and igniting a landmark movement.

    In the early 1970s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened, a camp "for the handicapped" in the Catskills, exploded those confines. Jened was their freewheeling Utopia, a place with summertime sports, smoking and makeout sessions awaiting everyone, and campers who felt fulfilled as human beings. Their bonds endured as they migrated West to Berkeley, California - a promised land for a growing and diverse disability community - where friends from Camp Jened realized that disruption and unity might secure life-changing accessibility for millions. Co-directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Nicole Newnham and film mixer and former camper Jim LeBrecht, this joyous and exuberant documentary arrives the same year as the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, at a time when the country's largest minority group still battles daily for the freedom to exist.

    CRIP CAMP: A DISABILITY REVOLUTION is executive produced by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama; Tonia Davis and Priya Swaminathan; Oscar nominee Howard Gertler and Ray Lifchez, Jonathan Logan and Patty Quillin; LeBrecht, Newnham and Sara Bolder produce.
