Recycled Reads is the Austin Public Library's Book Store. Books and media that are taken out of circulation from the Austin Public Library (a process called weeding) are taken to Recycled Reads to be sold back to the community in support of the Library. We also sell books and media donated by the public. For more about Recycled Reads' history and links to related news clippings, check out the About Us section. We regularly offer programming for adults and children, much of it centering around principles of reducing, reusing and recycling in support of the City of Austin's Zero Waste Initiative. We work to keep the store organized like a library and staff and volunteers alike are happy to help you figure out what to read (or listen to!) next.
