I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. We did a bit of biking, bookstore visiting, organizing and a lot of relaxing! One of the highlights of our weekend though was a visit to the new Austin Central Library.
The library is beautiful with a lot of open spaces and a rooftop terrace. We went through all the floors kind of quickly though as there were a lot of visitors but I would love to go back another day and do a bit more wandering around. Unfortunately the Recycled Reads shop was closed during our visit and the cafe isn’t open yet.
One thing I’d love to check out on our next visit is the Zine section. They have quite the collection but zines aren’t available for check-out so next time I need to plan a bit more time to look through some of those.
While the new library is beautiful, I don’t think I’ll be visiting that branch often as it’s located downtown and I don’t want to deal with the traffic woes. Still it’ll be fun to visit every once in a while. Of course a visit to the library is not complete without some books checked out.
Oh and you know what else was great? On our visit to Barnes & Noble on Friday they were having a sale of 30% off of all magazines and guess what I found? Flow Book for Paper Lovers 5. I have all of these editions and love them and it’s great to get these at a discount.
The only thing that was kind of stalled this weekend was my reading so I better get to it now. Let me know what you were up to and if you bought any books over the weekend.
