E-books are more portable and environmentally friendly. I can carry many books within my e-reader and read them at any time or place.

I prefer the convenience and easy portability. Feel the same way about video and music (streaming vs. physical products).

I tend to binge read books and read while traveling. I can size the print and put them on my iPad, thus saving space, though I do miss the books in my den/library.

My eyes are not as good as they used to be and e-books allow me to listen to the books I like.

I prefer audio downloads, CDs, ebooks in that order. I've tried to get the library to get more downloads and CDs, but they don't seem to listen. It's much easier to have a book on a Kindle.

Because the library does not do what you would like does not mean the "don't listen." It means they are trying to serve many patrons wanting various things.

Traditional, please!

But oddly I'm starting to prefer digital for comics.

I no longer go downtown to shop because parking has been too difficult for me to find without walking several blocks to the store I want to go to.

I have lived in Bend for over 50 years and until this summer have totally supported the down town business. Now I go to the shopping centers and also use Amazon. I don't like this but have no choice until downtown business forces the city to find an answer to this. Maybe downtown should be for the

I'm disabled, so parking in the public garage is too far for me to walk sometimes with my heart condition. More disabled parking would be nice downtown by the store fronts.

No, I never have trouble finding parking in downtown Bend because I never go to downtown Bend.

So that trash doesn't build up it safe and keeps the community from freaking out. A place to put a trailer for homeless people with access to dumping and water and electricity. Some homeless need a place that is safe and worry free. Go out and talk to the the homeless and see what they need.

City of Bend is taking steps--albeit baby steps--but an old motel is being converted and 3 managed camps are in the works. Will help only 10 percent of our unhoused population, though.

We need a controlled area to help keep the trash down. There could be people in charge of directing disposal of unwanted items, trash and out and out garbage. Supply areas for hand washing, showers, and laundry.
