On Friday, April 10 and Saturday, April 11, 2015, Austin Public Library will be hosting the annual Rebate Austin! This annual info fair allows folks to take a personal look at what the city has to offer homeowners and renters and to meet the folks who offer Austin’s rebates and freebies. Attendees walk away with all kinds of freebies as well as a clear grasp of what rebates are accessible for their personal situation and a better grasp of the application process!

Learn how to get free fire alarms, rain barrel rebates, composting rebates, water heater rebates, clothes dryer rebates, solar panel rebates, and more! Learn about the Electric Vehicle Program and where you can take free Xeriscaping classes and pick up free mulch!

This year, Rebate Austin! will take place over two days. Both days, the Fire Department will have a truck on-site for families to explore as well as their Fire Safety House, a fire-safety simulation trailer, where folks can learn how fires spread and fire safety techniques for the whole family.

Rebate Austin! is free and open to the public.

Friday, April 10, 3 to 6 p.m.

Saturday April 11, 2 to 5 p.m.
