The Austin Public Library does not participate in the Reading with Ringling Bros program or any other for-profit company. We are a City of Austin Department that falls under City of Austin ordinances prohibiting the library to promote any commercial enterprise. A partnership with a for-profit company is not allowed in this instance.

We do offer a Summer Reading Program, one of our largest initiatives each year, for youth ages 0-17. For more information on our program visit the Summer Reading Program.
