For the months of May and June, the Sisters Area Photography Club will be displaying their photographs. In the library community room, various photographs will be displayed by local photographers. In the Computer Room, photographs will have a ‘Rodeo Theme’. Come by to check the astounding quality and artistic beauty of these photos.

The Sisters Area Photography Club is a diverse group of photographic enthusiasts in Sisters who share a love of photography, improving their skills and helping other photographers improve.

The club is focused more on sharing than competition, more on learning from each other than besting one another. The group includes beginners, enthusiasts, great amateurs and professionals and everyone finds a comfortable slot.

Monthly club gatherings normally take place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 4:00 pm in the Sisters Library Community Room in Sisters, Oregon. Everyone is welcome to attend whether a member or not.

It’s “App-propo” For You!
DPL Mobil App

APPWant to renew a book or place one on hold? There’s an app for that. Library hours or locations? There’s an app for that. Download an ebook? There’s an app for that, too.
The Deschutes Public Library has a new mobile app to put the library at your fingertips. From any smart phone you can instantly tap into library resources, anytime, anywhere. You can search the library catalog, check your account, access eBooks and audio books, and more.

To download and install the library’s mobile app, search for Deschutes Public Library in your phone’s app store. Don’t forget to set your preferred pickup location to Sisters in the app’s settings once it is installed.

Searching the catalog with the mobile app is especially easy. Type your search yourself or use the “Scan ISBN” feature to use your phone’s camera to scan the ISBN of any book and see if the library owns a copy.

Explore – check out recently reviewed titles, new and on order items, and bestsellers
Search – search the entire library catalog in real time
My DPL – see what you have checked out or on hold, renew items
Locations – find your nearest library, see open hours and holiday closures
The app will save your library card number and PIN/password so that you don’t have to enter it every time you want to place a hold or check your account.

Don’t have your library card with you when you visit the library to check something out? No problem. Use your phone as your library card and scan your library barcode from your screen at any library express checkout.
