It was a sad day for the Bouldin neighborhood when the South Austin post office was moved to new facilities on South Congress. Fortunately, the city bought the old building, but it will be at least 2008 before it becomes a branch library. In the meantime, the Friends of the Austin Public Library are using the space as a used bookstore to raise funds for library projects. The store sells retired library and donated books, CDs, videos, and tapes for $1 and $2, and it also has a section of individually priced collectible books.
