Learn Music. Grow in Confidence. Share the Love.
Days: Tuesdays, Beginning June 4
Time: 1-3 p.m. Tuesdays, June 4-July 16
Where: Charlie Norr Center
This program is for girls, 10-17 and will be beginning this summer! Girls will have the opportunity to sing together and learn all about music. Through encouragement from their peers, daily esteem boosters, and so much more, girls will grow not only musically, but also find themselves with more confidence in all areas of life. Girls will also be a part of our Summer Music Clubs as volunteers, giving them the chance to share what they have learned with others. At the end of the summer, we will have a special performance for families to see all the girls have accomplished. We hope you can be a part of this awesome program!
Registration will be opening on May 1! Don’t miss out!

The goal of The Northwest Project is to pilot strategies over a five-year period to help families overcome the challenges that have kept them living in poverty and sustain their long-term success in emerging from those circumstances. The project includes a focus on 10 key areas for stability. Areas include: accountability, parent training, reliable transportation, affordable housing, quality childcare, budgeting/banking, financial planning, job training/education, resolved legal issues, and health and wellbeing.
The Community Foundation of the Ozarks selected northwest Springfield for this project because much of the area exceeds the city’s overall 25.6 percent poverty rate. In addition, the privately funded Northwest Project will take place in concert with the City of Springfield’s focus on improving public safety, infrastructure and chronic nuisance properties in this geographic area.
The Northwest Project is a collaboration among Missouri State University, Drury University, and Drew Lewis Foundation.
For adults. Grab your multipass and journey to the library to watch the cult classic “The Fifth Element,” rated PG-13. We’ll have the snacks covered with popcorn and mini cupcakes; bring a blanket if you want to spread out in front.
