The biggest little free library in the Missouri Bootheel
The city of Arbyrd is the only small town within Dunklin County without a Dunklin County Library Branch. To fill this gap in access to information to it's citizens, the Arbyrd Community Development Corporation established the Arbyrd Community Library in 2015. We are located in the conference room of the Arbyrd Municipal Building.
The Library provides reading material to all age groups, including access to the local newspaper: the Delta Dunklin Democrat, books for young readers, young adults, and adults in both fiction and non-fiction and a variety of genre.
Computer access is also available to the public. A laptop provides direct internet access and free WiFi is also available.
The library is provided for the community by the community. Everything included in the library has been donated through monetary, book, and service donations.
The Arbyrd Community Library is registered as a Little Free Library. The Library has its very beginings as a small bookshelf in the hallway of the Arbyrd Municipal Building. When people became aware of the need for a library in town, donations began to come in and we have grown to what it is today.
The library operates as a Little Free Library. We do not require specific membership, but rather encourage you to leave a book as you take a book. At the very least, we request you return what you borrow when you are finished. There are no due dates, and hence, no fines. But donations are greatly appreciated.
The mission of the Arbyrd Community Library is to provide equal access to information to its citizens. We follow the American Library Association guidelines to provide equal access, protect patron privacy, improve literacy, and advocate for intellectual freedom.
The Library is located at 102 NE Frisco St, Arbyrd, MO.
