Future Libraries: Expansions and Improvements

After six years of planning and meeting with more than 6,500 community members, Deschutes Public Library is putting vision into action to provide outstanding library spaces and services for decades to come. A bond measure approved by Deschutes County voters will fund the design and construction of an approximately 90,000-square-foot library to serve all Deschutes County residents. Bond funds are also paying for doubling the square footage of the Redmond Library and will renovate and update existing libraries in Downtown Bend, East Bend, La Pine, Sisters, and Sunriver.
