Some of the Deschutes Library branches will be open fewer hours to close a budget gap. Library Director Todd Dunkelberg says the move is needed because they expect to see a 3.6% drop in tax revenue this year: “We're actually looking for the first time since the Library District has been in existence, our revenues are actually decreasing and for us decreasing by 3.6% which is having a fairly substantial impact on us.” The library has been able to cut expenses by not replacing workers who have left and by cutting back library hours. The smaller branches, east Bend, La Pine, Sisters and Sunriver will only be open five days.  Redmond will be open six days and the main downtown Bend branch will be open seven days a week, but with some fewer hours.
