Best Recession-Proof Rentals: Austin Public Library

Best Recession-Proof Rentals: Austin Public Library
PHOTO BY Jana Birchum

For many, any entertainment expense outside the DVD rental kiosk requires some budgeting. That's why the library's so indispensable. Films and DVDs, including multidisc sets, can be kept out for up to three weeks, and the library regularly adds recent blockbuster, arthouse, and kids' selections to its collection. Online holds can be arranged that will deliver rentals to the branch of your choice, and the same goes for CDs, audiobooks, and paper volumes too, all of which can be renewed. And what's better than free?

Faulk Central Library
800 Guadalupe, 512/974-7400
