Promises, promises

After a bit more discussion, a sublease at the Recycled Reads store at 5335 Burnet Road was postponed yet again. Council will take up the proposed sublease at its March 7 meeting, a decision that was made after a chorus of pleas for more information on the future of the used bookstore, which could be tied to the proposed lease of the space to Austin Creative Reuse. Many were caught off guard by the idea of winding down operation at a central location of Recycled Reads in favor of book sales that would be dispersed throughout Austin Public Library branches. City Manager Spencer Cronk assured Council members that clarity on the future of Recycled Reads when the sublease returns in March was a “clear takeaway” from the past weeks’ discussions.
