It's a nice, relaxing place to read or use my laptop, pass time if I need to between appointments.

All the time. Books, Kindle books, CD's. The library is a wonderful resource for the community.

I generally read about two books per month. Our library is a valuable source of information and entertainment.

The library is one of the best values around. I borrow several hundred books a year.

I'm there a few times a week. Usually put items on hold online and pick them up at the branch. So glad to hear of the new hours and sometimes it's hard to make it there during opening hours after work

Just don't have a need any more! Doesn't mean I don't or won't support a library for those that want/need one.

I haven't been to the library in years. I can afford to buy my own books. Still, I completely support public librarys as they were the only access to books I had growing up poor.

Broken into and they were obviously looking for money as they did not take anything except some store reward cards in what they must have thought was a wallet.

I'm for this if they are designed to limit their light pollution and just light what they need to. No need for excess

I see lots of comments on nextdoor about car prowling, break-ins and vandalism. There are over 200 homes in our development and not one single street light! I keep all my outdoor lights on all night.

Studies show that increased light does not increase safety. Just wasting energy, disrupting birds, people's ability to sleep, and pollutes the night sky.

Especially along 97, where there are curves, and at exits or entrances to the parkway.

There are definitely streets or stretches of that could be better lit up. I walk frequently and it would make me more comfortable.

Dark skies are important

I support dark sky compliance. Light pollutes the night sky making it hard for migrating birds, observing the stars, and sleeping! Studies show that light does not increase safety.

Fri, 19 Jul 2019 20:17:18 -0400

Kerie Raymond

I'm encouraged that the City of Bend is replacing lamps with LED lamps that will use less power, emit less heat, and are dark sky compliant by pointing down, not out or up, preserving the night sky.

It’s fine the way it is. We are not a huge city. We have made it the past 30 years I have been here.

Wed, 17 Jul 2019 21:33:21 -0400

Bob Yetter

Yes, but it's grown significantly. I see lots of comments on Nextdoor about car prowling, break-ins and vandalism. More street lights may help minimize this. We do not have a single street light.
