Library transitions to temporary facility
Last updated 1/17/2023 at Noon
The Sisters Library is closed as of January 15 to allow for remodeling. The updated library will reopen in fall 2023. A temporary Sisters Library facility opens January 24, in a mobile unit on the current library property at 110 N. Cedar St. in Sisters. The library asks that customers hold their returns during the transition week (January 15-23). No late fees will be charged for materials, and holds will be available once the temporary space opens on January 24.

“We’re so appreciative of all the work library staff did to find temporary locations and to make the transitions as smooth as possible,” said Library Director Todd Dunkelberg. “While everyone is excited to get into the new library in Redmond and the remodeled library in Sisters, being able to offer temporary locations during construction and remodeling is a great way to continue supporting our communities during this time.”
Updates to the Sisters Library include bright and open spaces that welcome customers with amenities such as flexible meeting and tutoring rooms, an enhanced children’s discovery space, improved lighting, a cozy fireplace and reading area and a large community gathering space.
In November 2020, Deschutes County voters supported the Library’s bond measure to expand and improve libraries across the county. In addition to building a new library in Redmond and updating the Sisters Library, bond funds are being used to remodel and update existing libraries in Downtown Bend, La Pine, and Sunriver, as well as the construction of a new library at Stevens Ranch in east Bend to serve all Deschutes County residents.
