Pass to Adventure At the Cornelius Library
Imagine being able to check out free one-day passes to a variety of Portland-area cultural sites from your local public library. The Cornelius Library Board is currently planning for just such a program.
The board envisions a program based on the Tualatin City Library's very popular Pass to Adventure. Tualatin's program is a partnership between the cultural sites, local sponsors, and the library. Sponsors donate funds for the purchase of the yearly passes. In return, sponsors' names are listed in the program's promotional materials on the passes' packaging.
