Check out the virtual library

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 by Tai Moses

Bookworms are taking the closure of the Austin Public Library and Recycled Reads hard. Last week library officials told KUT they plan to reopen the library “when it can do so in a manner that does not jeopardize the health and safety of its employees and the community it serves.” But what many people may not know is that, while the library remains closed during the pandemic, the virtual library is open for business. All you need is a library card and a PIN to access the library’s digital resources, where you may read, research and browse until the cows come home. If you don’t believe me, take a quick peek at what’s available. Wow, right? Information, education and entertainment, all rolled up into one convenient place. If your library card has expired, you may renew it online here.
