Argyle visitor goes to Little Free Libraries

San Antonio resident Cecilia Perez recently visited her nephews Tommy and Charlie Perez in Argyle and took them to the Little Free Libraries in Bedford, Colleyville and Argyle.

When they went to The Real Estate Station’s Little Free Library in Argyle, Tommy chose the books, Cartons, Cans, and Orange Peels by Joanna Foster and Sunken Treasure by Gail Gibbons.

In an e-mail to the Argyle Little Free Library, Cecilia Perez wrote, “I am always looking for fun things to do with them and it [the Little Free Library] was very exciting for all of us.”

Argyle has four “Take a Book-Leave a Book” Little Free Libraries.

They are located at The Real Estate Station on Dallas Street and U.S. Highway 377; in front of Argyle Town Hall, 308 Denton St.; outside Edward Jones Investments, 100 Country Club Road, Suite 100; and in the parking lot of PointBank, 302 N. U.S. Highway 377.


Tips from Argyle police

“Leaving your car or truck’s engine running with valuables inside is easy prey for a thief,” said Argyle police Capt. Temple Cottle.

“Thieves monitor high drop-off/pick-up commercial businesses such as day care centers and dry cleaners,” he said. “The unsuspecting parent, generally a mom who usually carries a purse, is often distracted with the safety of getting her child inside the school or day care, leaving her valuables behind.”

“The thief knows it. From the curb to your car, snatch your purse, back to the curb and out of sight. It only takes 12 seconds,” Cottle warns. “Never leave your vehicle unlocked with valuables inside. ‘Hide it, lock it or lose it.’”
