You may know we’re more than a little invested in keeping things weird around here, hence the display you’ll currently encounter on our first floor, across from the staircase. Curiosity goes way beyond Wonderland with these books – a pet glacier, a duck who strikes up a friendship with Death, and of course a dip into classic Sendak surreality. A few of our favorites from the display are listed below. For all the weird you can handle, head upstairs to the kid’s section and visit Keeping Austin Weird, One Book at a Time…. We have a whole section dedicated to keepin’ it weird! Just doing our part to make sure not one iota of Austin is boring, ever.
