And if you're staying home, don't forget our friends @AustinPublicLib offer thousands of ebooks and audiobooks, as well as digital movies, music, and TV shows completely free with your library card! https://t.co/jm6eTHxjpp
 
In fact, @AustinPublicLib will now allow you to check out five items via @hooplaDigital, and cloudLibrary checkouts have been increased to 10 days to expand virtual library offerings during the #COVID19 pandemic.
 
and countless libraries across Texas also have virtual offerings like ebooks, audiobooks, and other media that you can check out with your library card!
 
And when this is all over, remember that your indie bookstores, like @BookPeople, @interabangbooks, @bluewillowbooks, @bookwomanaustin, @larkandowlbooks, and @MalvernBooksTX, and your local libraries will welcome you back with open arms (and books).
Did you know many Texas independent bookstores, like @BookPeople in Austin, @interabangbooks in Dallas, and @BlueWillowBooks in Houston allow online shopping for new releases, old favorites, and pre-orders? 📚
 
You can also support local bookstores through @librofm, which offers audiobooks sold directly through indie bookstores. @BookPeople, @interabangbooks, and @bluewillowbooks sell audiobooks on Libro, as well as @bookwomanaustin in Austin and @larkandowlbooks in Georgetown!
As @indiebound helpfully outlined in this thread, there are many ways you can continue to support your local bookstores from your home 👇 twitter.com/indiebound/sta…
