    The beloved tradition of the Train Man at the Library continues...virtually.

    Raised in the Midwest, Michael Lavrich learned early to love trains. His grandfather, a night hostler who tended three steam locomotives, encouraged his curiosity when they spent time together in the train yard. Michael pursued a degree in education and spent time teaching middle school in Georgia, kindergarten on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana before relocating to New Mexico and making a home with his family in house right next to a railroad. His interests in trains came full circle as he and his family started collecting toy trains.

    Michael and his family moved to Bend just before the turn of this century when Bend was a booming metropolis of 35,000 souls. The noise and traffic were near unbearable after the small towns he'd lived in, but he found refuge in drives to the mountains and walks in Sunriver. As a lover of knowledge and books it didn't take long for Michael to discover the Sunriver Library, where he enjoyed story times with his daughter and son. Not soon after, Michael offered to set up a train display at the Library for Christmas and a tradition was born. Each year Michael spends days setting up his trains at the Downtown Bend Library for the community to enjoy.

    This program will be available Tuesdays and Thursdays via YouTube at https://bit.ly/2Yaurca

    Join community librarians for songs, rhymes, stories and fun!

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    Get lost in this transformative and intriguing cello performance.

    Experience the full-bodied performance from inspirational artist Billy Mickelson. The artist recommends listening to this performance with headphones for greatest impact.

    Third Seven is the stage name for Billy Mickelson of Bend, Oregon. Billy has played music his entire life but has been performing music professionally full time since 2008. He consistently travels in and with a number of bands, but as of late, Billy has been focusing his efforts on his solo work, Third Seven. Performing all around the world, (from Europe and beyond...) he knows no bounds. Billy has performed everything from yoga classes to punk rock shows and absolutely everything in between.

    Billy uses looping and layering of cello, rhythm and vocals to create unique atmospheres for his audiences to get lost in.
