100th Anniversary Celebration

The Argyle Free Library will celebrate its 100th anniversary in February 2021. In anticipation of that event, a committee has been set up to plan events consistent with pandemic restrictions. We are planning on creating a ”MEMORY SCRAPBOOK” of pictures of Argyle through the past 100 years. From November 1 through January 31, we are looking for your pictures of Argyle’s past. They will be scanned and returned if desired.

We also plan on creating a “TIME CAPSULE” to be housed in the library, to be opened in 50 years. We solicit your ideas of items to be included in the capsule. Items must be non-perishable and received by January 31.The committee will select items from those submitted to be included as space will be limited.

Please send or bring your pictures and “capsule” ideas/items to the Library. Volunteers to help with these and other projects are welcomed. For more information call the library at 518-638-8911.

Fresh & Free Produce At Argyle Free Library

In conjunction with the Southern Adirondack Library System and the Fresh Food Collective, Argyle Free Library will now be offering the community free, fresh produce on a weekly basis! Come into the library to pick up your produce from our new mini fridge located at the circulation desk. We ask that you only take what you will use.

Donated Book Policy

COVID Safety Policies

We ask that patrons continue to return items to the outside book drop only.

Mask wearing and social distancing when in the library is required.

Patrons may use the printer/fax machine/copier and the computers. They will be sanitized between uses. We ask that patrons do not "browse the stacks" at this point in time. If you would like a specific item please let staff know and they will get it for you with gloved hands.
There will be book displays with printed summaries so patrons can "grab, checkout, and go". We are trying to limit contact with library items as much as possible during this time. We are also still offering curbside for those that do not feel comfortable coming into the library.
Thank you for understanding!
If you have any questions please reach out to us at arg-director@sals.edu or by calling the library at 518-638-8911.

Electronic Resources

Here is a list of e-resources to be used at home during this time. These resources are great for homeschooling or to help cure boredom and anxiety as we practice social distancing. I will update with more as I learn of them!
