It’s Christmas at the Library

The annual Bobbie Jean Memorial Library Christmas Party sponsored by the Imboden Friends of the Library will be held on Thursday December 8th from 3:30 until 4:30 pm. Parents bring your child to enjoy holiday refreshments, visit with Santa, and each child will receive a free book. Children ages 2-12 years old are welcome to attend. The Friends of the Library use this opportunity to promote reading in our community. The Friends of the Library raise funds at the annual Pancake Breakfast in March to help purchase the books to give away during the party. These funds are also used to purchase new items for the library. So stop by the Imboden library on December 8th, Santa will be there!

NEW* Early Learning Station for young patrons.

The Bobbie Jean Memorial Library in Imboden, Arkansas would like to welcome all patrons to stop by to view our NEW Early Literacy Station. This all in one learning center is designed for children ages 2-10 years old and comes pre-loaded with over 60 developmental software programs, 30+ in english/30+ in spanish.
Some of the programs included are Reader Rabbit, Kidspiration, Krazy Art Room, Millie’ Math House, Peep Floats, Sammy’s Science House, Dora’s Magic Castle, Jumpstart, Musican, History Explorer, Sesame Street Let’s make a word, Britannica Student Encyclopedia, and much MORE! The current library favorite is the Britannica Encyclopedia program where you can even view video clips of some of the topics and Little Monster goes to School which tells an animated story that kids can read along with on the screen.
The Imboden Library is excited about this new feature to our library. The station is fully operational and ready to be accessed by our young patrons during normal library hours. Hours of Operation are as follows- Monday open from 10:00- 5:00, Tuesday, Thursday,and Friday open from 12:00-5:00, and Saturday 9:00-12:00. Parents are welcome to stop by and try out the station with their children.

This project was made possible through a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services to the Arkansas State Library under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act. You can also explore other early literacy stations in the area by visiting the Lawrence County Library in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas or the branch Driftwood Library located at Lynn.
