The Cordova Center Capital Campaign is well underway and needs your help to succeed. There are lots of ways to contribute and leave a legacy for your family. The Northstar Theater will come to life this fall and be able to provide a venue for movies, seminars, music events, dance and theater performances. This 200 seat auditorium will house comfortable seats on a raked floor and the chairs come complete with side arms for use in taking notes or using laptops.
YOU have the opportunity to purchase a theater seat in the NEW Northstar and have a plaque installed in memory of a loved one, in honor of your family or even a favorite pet. A $1000 tax-deductible donation will ensure your legacy lives on inside the Cordova Center. Stop by or call the museum at 424-6665.

The theme this summer is Every Hero Has a Story, and your library has all kinds of heroes to discover.

Through stories, you can enter a new world and connect with others in your school, in your family, and across the country who are also reading. And when someone asks you what you did with your summer, you can proudly show them your reading log and tell them all about the great stories you experienced and all the heroes you met.
