We’re thankful for you.
Well—it’s the day before Thanksgiving and we’ve spent the day enjoying a nice brainstorming session here at Recycled Reads. We are working on improving the store as we look toward the future and take further part in helping Austin reach its zero waste goals. Most importantly, we want to embed ourselves in the community to remind people how much Austin Public Library has to offer.
This year we want to take a minute to go around the [virtual] table and say what we’re thankful for.
Mindy is thankful for all the support we get from the community.
Ruth is thankful for hot glue. (A crafter’s dream adhesive!)
Laura is thankful for the chance to meet and work alongside so many book and craft lovers.
Betsy is thankful for an awesome job involving both librarianship and sustainability.
We’re collectively thankful for the hard work from our volunteers. There are so many things about the store that would be impossible without the help of our great group of volunteers.
With that, here’s one more reminder that the store will be closed tomorrow and Friday. Happy Thanksgiving! We’ll open our doors again on Saturday at noon. You may have heard of Small Business Saturday—if not, it is a great reminder to put money back into your community, whichever community that is. In Austin, our customers support a small business as well as an entire library system. At Recycled Reads, we’re going to call the Saturday after Thanksgiving Green Saturday. Save some green, and act green too. We’ll be here noon to six as usual!
