Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Read Library Books on Your Kindle: Ours goes digital with eBooks

Take advantage of new technology.

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 5:00 PM

You can now borrow books from the Deschutes Public Library by checking them out (digitally download, that is) to your Kindle, Nook, iPhone, Droid, etc.

And to make the process less intimidating, our library has easy, step-by-step directions that walk you through the whole process. 

Before you begin, make sure you have the following:

  • Windows or Mac OS X
  • Adobe Digital Editions, installed and activated (free download here)
  • eReader and connecting cable
  • Deschutes Library card and PIN number

The lending period is similar to old-timey books with actual paper (7, 14, or 21 days).

Enjoy. You're welcome.
