For the past 19 years, Deschutes Public Library has sponsored Central Oregon's Community Read. They have two books to celebrate this year! Our wonderful community readers and library staff selected The Seed Keeper by Diane Wilson as the 2022 read. They also selected A Novel Idea: Youth Edition with I Can Make This Promise by Christine Day, which is ideal for readers in third through eighth grades. You can read all about the program and events in their Readers Guide. The community read events culminate with author programs the first weekend of May. PIck up your copies today and start participating in this long-time Bend tradition!
