Deschutes County has four major libraries under the Deschutes County Public Library System and they are as follows: Bend Library, Lapine Branch Library, Redmond Branch Library, Sisters Library, and Sunriver Branch Library. The Library's Administration's office is headquartered in the old Bend Public Library and serves a population of approximately 130,000 people. During the last three years circulation throughout the library service area has increased to 1.2 million items per year.

The Bend Public Library was opened in October 1998. The 40,000 square foot building was designed by Thomas Hacker and Associates of Portland. Circulation, Childrenís Services, and Technical Services are located on the ground floor. The adult stacks, reading areas, study areas, computer lab, public computer stations, and Reference Department are upstairs. The Branch also serves as the "main library" for the system, providing more in-depth services than is possible at the smaller branch libraries.

The La Pine Public Library was inaugurated on November 15, 2000. The Libraryís construction was made possible with generous input from a community committee and was designed by Richard Turi Architects. This Library has a childrenís area, an active teen area, and an adult quiet reading area, and a public meeting room. A wide variety of books, CDís, cassettes, magazines, newspapers, music CDs, videos, and DVDs are offered to as well.
