Reading is an integral part of our society and has been for generations. Thanks to authors, libraries, literary foundations, and even technology companies, we will be able to pass along amazing literature to future generations.
Austin is a city with a rich and vibrant history. From history books, to ghost books, to tales of the wild west, Austin continues to be a city for the books.
We recommend Weird City: Sense of Place and Creative Resistance in Austin, Texas where author Joshua Long explores the sense of place, politics, and the influence of the Creative Class on the shape and growth of Austin.
We know how important it is to be able to find a library whenever the mood strikes you. We've put together a map to make it easier for you to find a library.
