Digging Through the Weeds

Ask any librarian and you’ll find out the harsh truth about libraries: They just can’t keep everything on the shelves. Eventually, some books have got to go. Good news, though: A discarded book sale is an opportunity for individuals to find some great bargains for old books. Not only can you give these classics a “forever home” in your own personal library, but your purchases will help support the Austin Public Library system.

As the library staff “weeds” their collection from the 20 circulating branches of the library, plus the Faulk Central Library and Austin History Center, they can offer books to the public at prices ranging from 50 cents to a couple of dollars. Local donations add to the selection, too. They accept cash (of course), major credit cards and checks. Check it out, but don’t worry about overdue fines.
