"A Novel Idea" 2019 Wraps Up 
The nearly month-long celebration of the 16th Annual A Novel Idea wrapped up on Sunday with a fantastic presentation by Rocket Men author Robert Kurson. Kurson spoke to an entranced audience about the daring Apollo 8 mission of 1968. The immense community participation in A Novel Idea events is what makes this program one of the largest community read projects in the Pacific Northwest. Keep an eye on our website here for a video recapping Sunday's event, and check out a photo album on our Flickr site here. Our thanks to the Deschutes Public Library Foundation and the sponsors who make A Novel Idea free to all. The Foundation welcomes gifts from individuals and corporations to ensure A Novel Idea's continued success; you can donate online here.

Whether you want to send something to print from home from your laptop or from a tablet while you're in the library, we have you covered! Out of paper, ink supply low, or printer on the fritz? Count on us! Customer Kristin (right) did just that. We provided a little help and voila!, she was printing in the library in no time. For more info on mobile printing, click here.

This Month, "Know Machines" at Your Library
Humans built machines, and machines helped us build the world. Get a glimpse into the past and future of some of our most fascinating machinery this May when we explore everything from Leonardo da Vinci to the Industrial Revolution, and artificial intelligence to perhaps the most intricate machine of all: the human body. All programs are free and open to the public. Link here for a full list of programs, dates, and times; you'll also find programs in the right column.
