The Cook Arts Center provides high-quality programs in the arts (music, dance, theater, visual arts, and pottery) to give children and adults in our neighborhood an opportunity to develop a deeper appreciation of the arts. Through these programs, participants celebrate their own culture and the cultures of others. They enrich their lives, develop skills, build relationships, enhance their self-esteem, and build community.
The Cook Library Center focuses on the intellectual development of children and adults. After-school programs include homework help, computer usage, mind-expanding games such as chess and Scrabble, storytelling events, and field trips to cultural institutions, colleges, and universities. Adults use our library primarily for English as a Second Language classes, job searches, and resume writing. We offer weekly one-on-one computer classes for adults led by bilingual volunteers.
