The library has a program coming up that I am so excited about and I was hoping you would be willing to blast it out to all the MCBL folks!

official flyer

Rebate Austin! is the Austin Public Library’s one stop shop for folks to come and learn about all the amazing rebates and free programs available! The library has gathered representatives from all the City of Austin departments that offer rebates or free services to Austinites to present on these programs and then be available for folks to come up and talk one on one about the programs and how they can apply. In addition to the rebate meet and greet, we will be giving away  freebies, door prizes and coffee to all and  free Taco Deli tacos (breakfast tacos on the Saturday program and dinner tacos for the Monday program) will be provided for the first 40 guests!


So, just to give you a taste of what we will be offering…


•           Information on how the Austin Fire Department will come to your home or apartment and provide you with a free home hazard inspection and install  free smoke alarms in your bedrooms –  and the smoke alarms come with batteries that will last 10 years!

•           Through Austin Resource Recovery you can get up to a $75 rebate on a home composting system and reduce your monthly utility bill by downsizing your trash cart? Information on how Austin Energy you can get an $85 rebate on an internet connected thermostat that will also reduce your monthly energy bill?

•           Through Austin Water you can get a rebate on water wise landscaping that will not only promote local plants and support wildlife but also will require less watering and reduce your monthly water bill?

•           And did you know that for 25.00 you can get a 6 month energy pass through Austin Energy for electric vehicles?!? Imagine a 25.00 “fuel” bill for 6 months’ worth of driving!!


Here is the official Press Release if you would like it!


There are so many amazing programs and rebates available to Austinites and we want to help you access them.
