Important Health Notice

Hey everyone,
The Governor of Texas has stated that he will be opening everything up in Texas as well as repealing the mask mandate on March 10th.

Austin Books, Guzu Gallery, and Outlaw Moon Games and Toys will still be ensuring the safety and health of our customers and staff by requiring masks and limiting capacity as well as providing hand sanitizer at entrances and exits.

Just like everyone, we want this pandemic over, but ignoring it isn’t going to make it go away.

Please be safe. Please continue to wear a mask. Please get vaccinated when you can.

If you have any questions or concerns please give us a holler.

Thanks for the time.

We will only allow 10 CUSTOMERS AT A TIME in Austin Books. Guzu has a limit of 4 and Outlaw Moon has a limit of 3. This is per the current Occupancy Load mandate of 25% capacity.

Yes, we will continue to do an online pull list. This will change at some point when we’ve completely transitioned to our new Point of Sale System — which you can see HERE.

We will also be inputting customers into our Point of Sale System for Special Orders, Pre-Orders and Ongoing Pulls. This is optional but, if you plan to take advantage of this service, fill out THIS FORM on our website and get ahead of the rush!
