The Bobbie Jean Memorial Library Summer Reading Program is once again in full swing to encourage children to read,  improve on their reading skills and have fun at the library.

This year the  Summer Reading Program theme is “Dream Big……Read”. The Bobbie Jean Memorial Library has over 50 area children signed up this year to participate in the program.

A few of the activities so far have been making counting sheep, talking about bedtime,  reading The Lorax and making truffala trees, and  making a wishing tree with each child’s “wish” tied to a branch.  The upcoming weeks will include more great crafts, stories, shadow puppet theatre, a program by Lake Charles State Park on nocturnal animals, Stranger Danger program from the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, and  much more.

Children enjoy weekly crafts, stories, snacks, and games during the 6 week long program and celebrate with a party on the last day.  The program is free to the public.

Mrs. Lisa would like to thank Savanah Williams and the Imboden Boy Scouts, Johnny Scales and Austin Hurt for helping to pass out craft supplies, snacks, hang the art projects, and after program clean-up.

A special thank you also goes out to the Imboden Friends of the Library group for a monetary donation to help provide prizes and refreshments for the upcoming party,  Pig-N-Out BBQ for donating 2 of the prizes for our drawing and local parents for drink donations for our snack time.
