While the rest of the country was doing the hustle and embracing polyester, Deschutes County continued to define itself.

Deschutes County residents numbered 30,442 in 1970, with 13,710 people in Bend and 3,721 in Redmond. The 1970s brought change to Deschutes County, as lumber mills began their slow contraction and destination resorts like Sunriver, Inn at the Seventh Mountain, and Black Butte Ranch began reshaping the economy of the area.

The Deschutes Public Library turns 100 years old in 2020! We celebrate our 100th anniversary with a new series of programs titled "Deschutes by the Decades." This series will explore and reflect upon Deschutes County's history through the last ten decades. Although there has been tremendous change over these 100 years, the Deschutes Public Library's commitment and dedication to serve the residents and communities in Deschutes County has stayed steadfast.
