This small and mighty library offers full services such as books, music, and movies; public computers; a community meeting room and hosts library-sponsored lectures and presentations as well as story times; and an interactive Early Learning space for children.

    This is a chance for struggling readers to read one on one with a dog and her trainer. Kids will have the opportunity to read with Callie, a Pet Partners certified therapy dog for 15 minutes. Parents, we will ask that you wait outside the room. This gives readers the opportunity to feel most comfortable about reading read without being overheard by too many people.

    12:00 PM - Wednesday - Meeting Room

    St. Charles is 100 years old! Come hear about the history of our hospital.

    The story of St. Charles began in 1918 when the first hospital in Bend officially opened on the banks of the Deschutes River. It started with five Sisters of St. Joseph whose mission was to care for all or care for none. This Pub Talk starts with those early days of providing health care to a raw logging town (including the sisters’ battle with the Spanish Flu epidemic) and traces the changes in the community as they relate to the history of the medical institution, including “Hospital Hill,” the Great Depression, World War II, and booming population growth--evolving into the regional health system it is today.

    Rick Martin served St. Charles Health System in many leadership roles over nearly four decades. He worked closely for many years with Sister Catherine Hellmann, the visionary former CEO of St. Charles, who propelled St. Charles from a quiet local hospital to a regional health center, and he has many stories to share from those days. He retired last year, and loves to fish, hunt and camp.

    Ed Cheeney worked in administration and finance for St. Charles Health System for 29 years until his retirement in 2011. As a volunteer, he has been digitally archiving historical documents and artifacts.

    With hospitals in Bend, Redmond, Prineville and Madras, St. Charles Health System is the largest provider of medical care in Central Oregon.
