Bibliophiles of all ages naturally gravitate to this, the main location of the Austin Public Library. With over a quarter-million books and 800-plus magazines and periodicals on site, the Faulk Library can satisfy any book lover's needs, and obtaining a lending card is easy. Special technology is also on hand to enable greater ease of use for the physically disabled or visually impaired patrons. Named after a legendary local writer and political activist, the Faulk Library was officially renamed by the city a while back. It is a friendly, low-key place to hang out, read and relax.
