Recycled Reads is Four. Now what?

Group and Window

A big, hearty Thank You to everyone who stopped by the store last Saturday to help celebrate our 4 Year Anniversary. We had a great day with a Literature Live Puppet Show (Check out the schedule here—there are a few more opportunities to catch the performance of Anansi and the Golden Box of Stories around town!), craft demonstrations by our own crafty lady, Laura, and really fun live music performed by Joe Blanda.

Now, we’re excited to make a few announcements. Starting tomorrow, Thursday March 7, Recycled Reads will be open until 8pm on Thursdays. That’s two more hours every week to spend with us in the shop. We are looking forward to adding more programming—be it craft demonstrations and workshops, reading or writing groups, or story time for the kids with these extra Thursday evening hours. If there is something you’d like to use our space for on Thursday evenings, let us know on Facebook or leave us a note in the comments! We are open to ideas for making Recycled Reads a creative space for the community.

When you stop by the store next, be sure to check out our new window sign. (You can’t miss it!) We have so many first-time customers surprised to find out we are part of the Austin Public Library that we figured we’d announce it to Burnet Road. To help cover the costs of the sign, we made and sold a collection of book planters. There are a few left, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to support the store and go home with a great planter, perfect for springtime in Texas.

Last, we are working on making the transition to sell some of our collectible books online. This means we will be able to reach a larger audience, but it also means our local customers will be able to browse our collectibles online and shop in the store. We’ll still make sure to highlight books on the blog, but hopefully this transition will create a more streamlined online browsing and buying experience.
