Recycled Reads to Celebrate Three Year Anniversary


On Saturday, Feb. 25, Recycled Reads will celebrate our third year anniversary as the Austin Public Library’s used bookstore. Since leather is the traditional gift for three years, we had a faux leather bookmark designed. This bookmark will appear in the February 23 Austin Chronicle. We encourage you to cut out the bookmark, or bring a photocopy or a copy on your cell phone, digital camera or other device to Recycled Reads to be entered into a drawing for a $5 gift certificate to the Recycled Reads bookstore. Anyone who purchases $15-$25 on Saturday, Feb. 25 will be entered into a drawing for a $15 gift certificate, and anyone spending over $25 will be entered in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate.


Our celebration includes a puppet show at 1:00 and music by singer/songwriter Joe Blanda at 2:00. Special displays and other surprises will make it a special day.
