About Us


Austin Public Library X The Library Foundation

The Austin Public Library Shop, located at Austin Central Library, opened in October 2017. We offer APL branded merchandise, book themed products, and unique, locally sourced gifts. 

The online APL Shop launched in November 2020, while the physical store was closed due to Covid-19, and offers a curated selection of products. 

This online endeavor is a partnership between APL and The Library Foundation. The Library Foundation’s mission is to support APL by increasing awareness about the Library and its importance to the community, and to enhance library collections, programs, and facilities.  

Within this partnership, online proceeds benefit both Austin Public Library and The Library Foundation. We thank you for your support!
