BookPeople's Season of Giving


A Community Bound By Books

Every year we like to share our very favorite books of the year in a catalog featuring our booksellers and their favorite books. But we’ve been a community bound by books for nearly 50 years, and to celebrate we’re looking out instead of in. This year, for a Season of Giving, we’re taking a look at all the other great organizations that make Austin such an incredible place to live. Some we’ve worked with in the past, and some are new groups whose missions we connected to deeply—we’re hosting give-back days throughout the month of December, when you can come in and make donations directly to these incredible non-profits and we’ll give part of your purchase to them, and learn more about each and every organization on our blog! We’re so excited and honored to be able to give their voices a platform this season, and we hope that you’ll find their work as important and inspiring as we do.


Visit their websites to learn more about these wonderful organizations and stop by the store on their Give-Back Day. Present the organization's flier at the registers that day, and 20% of your purchase will be donated to that specific non-profit. Check out the schedule below to see which group will participate each day.
