About the Library:
Crook County Library strives to help every County resident experience the joys of learning and discovery. Community needs and interests are front-and-center to everything the library does. Its 14 employees are encouraged to provide library services inside and outside the building, both on their own and in partnership with other local organizations. In addition to providing over 100,000 physical and digital items for checkout, the library offers countywide outreach and a wide variety of programming year-round, including an award-winning Summer Reading Program. Given the librarys small staff and team-centered approach, staff are integral in driving the librarys services, policies, and strategic direction, together with the patrons, the librarys five-member Board of Trustees, and the County Court (AKA Board of Commissioners). The library seeks continual growth and improvement and thus encourages staff to actively participate in local community organizations as well as the Oregon Library Association and other professional groups.

The 17,430 sq. ft. library facility, designed by noted library architect Richard Turi, was constructed in 1999 and offers a spectacular view of the rimrocks, a comfortable gathering place for patrons, and a short walk to downtown Prineville. In addition to its own materials, Crook County Library has access to materials from the libraries in neighboring Deschutes and Jefferson Counties thanks to a resource-sharing network serving over 225,000 Central Oregon residents. Each month, Crook County Library patrons visit the library over 10,000 times and check out over 14,000 items. As a county department, the librarys $960,000 annual operating budget comes from the Countys general fund, with significant additional financial support from an active and supportive Friends of the Library as well as generous grants and donations.
