FREE PASS TO CHILDREN’S MUSEUM OF EASTERN OREGON @ YOUR cook memorial library

La Grande, Oregon, DECEMBER 24, 2010:  Cook Memorial Library now has available for patrons a free pass to the Children’s Museum of Eastern Oregon (CMEO) in Pendleton.  The free pass covers all members of a family living under the same roof.  If you would like to invite others to join you for the day, admission is only $3 per person.  The Museum provides hours of fun, lifelong memories and unique educational experiences for many children and families in the community.

 

CMEO began in 1996 with the mission to provide children of all ages with opportunities for educational exploration and development through interactive exhibits and play.  It was created through the collaborative efforts of over 300 community volunteers and today has grown into an Eastern Oregon destination.  In addition, CMEO is the only children’s museum in all of Eastern Oregon making it a unique community resource for early childhood education and development.

 

The Children’s Museum of Eastern Oregon is full of theme-oriented environments designed to provide hands-on educational and cultural experiences for children of all ages.  Some of the exhibits include Birthday Room, Science Lab, Art Room, Fire Station, Construction Zone, Costume Corner and more!  In addition to the exhibits, CMEO provides many learning opportunities for children through educational programming including classes, camps, and weekly events.  For a current viewing of the weekly programs and special events visit www.cmeo.org.  You can also become a fan of CMEO on Facebook.

 

The pass may be obtained by asking at the Cook Memorial Library Check Out desk.  The Museum is located at 400 South Main Street in downtown Pendleton.  Call 541.276.1066.

 

This year Libraries of Eastern Oregon (LEO), with funding provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, has partnered with the Children’s Museum of Eastern Oregon to bring the free pass program to libraries in the LEO system.
