Bandon Public Library
Located just a quarter mile from Bandon’s beautiful coastline and within the Bandon City Park is the surprisingly busy Bandon Public Library. The fact that this little library is busy is actually no surprise when you discover the wide selection of books, magazines and movies, the availability of computers and special rooms, and the variety of fun and informative events going on!
The library is fully stocked with fiction books of all genres, non-fiction books where you can learn almost anything you need to know, books on CDs and tapes, a huge selection of DVD and VHS movies, magazines for everyone’s interests, and more.
The Bandon Public Library is more than just a place to find reading, listening and watching materials, however! There are a variety of free activities to participate in which include, but are not limited to:
- Computer literacy classes
- Monthly classic film nights
- Monthly travel nights
- Monthly author nights
- Children’s reading programs and storytimes (both during the school year and in the summer)
- Never-ending book sale
While in the library, you can also take advantage of the high-speed wireless connection, public access internet computers, and quiet rooms for reading, study and meetings.
The Bandon Public Library is also a Pearson Vue testing site for computer-based testing. Before making plans to drive to Roseburg, Eugene or Portland to take a test, check with the library to see if you can take it much closer to home!
Before you leave the library, be sure to spend some time in the lobby where you will see juried art exhibits featuring local artists which change monthly.
The Bandon Public Library is wheelchair and stroller accessible. The entrance is at sidewalk level, and the building is all on one level.
