Library in the Park Bookmobile Tour

The Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library will host a bookmobile tour to kick off summer reading club! Library in the Park will be a 7 day, 17 stop tour around Craighead and Poinsett Counties. 

The wheels on the bookmobile are going to be hitting the road the first week of June for its inaugural tour around the Crowley Ridge Library locations! The Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library added the bookmobile in the spring of 2020, just before the onset of the pandemic. The Library in the Park Bookmobile Tyour will be held from June 1st through June 9th at parks around the library service area. The bookmobile will make stops in both Craighead and Poinsett County. “We want to do something to serve our patrons and the annual Summer Reading Club Kick Off Party is postponed for another year. We're unable to do in person programming at this time, and we have the lovely new bookmobile. We're taking it out and about in the community and helping patrons sign up for beanstack and library cards,” said Youth Services Manager Carol Moore. She said they are excited to see visitors at the event! “It seems like a long time since we've been able to connect with our community in person, so the bookmobile is a socially distanced way to reconnect. Come and check out the CCJPL bookmobile in Craighead and Poinsett Counties,” said Moore.
