The Pendleton Community Library is much loved. Located at 595 E. Water Street in the heart of downtown, it’s a fabulous resource for families and adults, and provides a lot of free and reasonably priced community services, from CPR classes to a Community Garden.

With a collection of nearly 70,000 titles, our library has books, movies, and magazines, a copy and fax machine, and even a notary public on staff. A library card is all you need for all kinds of great resources.

Check out the Pendleton Community Garden, the Alpha Seed Library, and Read ‘n’ Feed as examples of how thinking outside the box can expand community resources and build upon health and wellbeing. There’s also free Yoga instruction monthly and one-on-one help with your resume (Call 765-778-7527 to set up an appointment.)

There’s a lot going on in the teen department, too, from YA book discussions to video game tourneys, and even the Pendleton Anime Society.
