Future Libraries: La Pine Library

The La Pine Library is centrally located and near local schools. It is a popular destination for all ages and is especially bustling after school with students. The planned renovation creates a bright and open space that welcomes the entire community with amenities including meeting/tutor rooms, an enhanced children’s discovery space, a cozy fireplace and reading area, and a large community gathering space.

What’s happening with the La Pine Library?

The La Pine Library will close at the end of the day on January 25 to allow for remodeling. A temporary La Pine Library is in the works and is scheduled to open in late February 2023, in the John C. Johnson Building across the parking lot from the library. Please hold your returns while the library is closed during this transition time (January 26–late February 2023). You can also return items to any other Deschutes Public Library location (including the Sunriver Library, just 15 miles to the north). No late fees will be charged for materials. The remodeled La Pine Library is scheduled to reopen in fall 2023.
