The Knitting Club meets every Wednesday from 2:00pm-4:00pm 

New book donation policy

 

We had a record year with all of the donations we received. Thank you for being so generous!

The record book donation has created a slight problem, though. The building cannot support the weight of so many books, so the board and the director have decided to implement a new donated book policy. 

Argyle Free Library Donated Book Policy

Gifts/donations 
Gifts or donations of any material will be evaluated for inclusion in the collection. If we deem that the material is right for the collection, we will add it to our shelves. If the material is not right for us, we will either sell it at our annual book sale or direct the person to other organizations that may accept the item.

How to drop off gifts and donations 
We only accept books on the first Saturday of the month from 12 pm to 1 pm. During that time, volunteers will be at the library to accept donations. They will go through donations and accept books for inclusion in the collection or for sale at our annual book sale. Any books that the volunteers deem are not fit for inclusion in the collection will not be accepted. A list of other organizations that may accept the books will be available upon request.

General guidelines on materials the library will and will not accept

Books and materials the library WILL accept: 
Fiction that has been popular in the last three years 
Non-fiction on topics such as knitting, cooking, gardening that are in fair condition. 
Non-fiction on topics that date quickly (health, law, technology, science) that are between one year old and three years old 
Paperbacks in fair condition with genres of western, romance, mystery, and science fiction 
DVDs that came out in the last 3 years
