Welcome!

We welcome you to the relaunch of the Deschutes Public Library Events guide. We are excited to bring you a variety of inperson, online, and hybrid (online and in-person) events and programs.

Using This Guide

This Events guide gives you a broad overview of all that is happening at your library in April and May. You will find full descriptions and more information for all programs on our web calendar at https://dpl.pub/ events. The web calendar is also your go-to place for any programs that require registration. When a program is offered in a hybrid style— both in-person and online—you will find it listed as both “ONLINE” and at the specific library location where it is happening simultaneously in person.

Attending In-person Events

We are happy to welcome you back to story times, classes, lectures, and more. Note that space may be limited at in-person events. Because things can change rapidly due to COVID, be sure to check the online web calendar for the latest information before attending an inperson event (https://dpl. pub/events).

J

oin us throughout April and into May for the 19th annual A Novel Idea. The idea behind A Novel Idea is simple: pick a great book, engage with community through thought-provoking and relevant programming, and wrap up the project with free and accessible visits from the authors. This year we offer two books, one for adults and one for young readers.

The Seed Keeper

A haunting novel spanning several generations, The Seed Keeper follows a Dakota family’s struggle to preserve their way of life, and their sacrifices to protect what matters most.

I Can Make This Promise

This debut novel for middle-grade readers tells the story of a girl who uncovers her family’s secrets—and finds her own Native American identity. Both books are available to check out from your library, as well as instantly as eBooks with no waiting via Hoopla Digital.

Programming

Programming begins in early April and wraps up with the authors’ visits in early May. Find A Novel Idea-related events on pages 2–8 of this guide as well as online at www.deschuteslibrary.org/calendar/novelidea.
