You can also donate directly to the Austin Public Library via Austin Energy. 

Support the Austin Public Library when you pay your monthly Austin Energy bill.
Have you noticed the blank line on your monthly bill that invites you to fill in the donation amount for Austin Parks and Libraries? When you fill in this blank line, your dollars go to support parks and to the Austin Public Library. This option is also available when you pay your Austin utility bill online.
The Library uses the donated funds to add ebooks, emagazines, streaming video and downloadable music to enhance the collection. Every dollar expands the Virtual Library for everyone in the community.

In addition to the support our hundreds of members provide, the Austin Public Library Friends Foundation gratefully recognizes our corporate and foundation partners.
