The Book Cycle extends the life cycle of books by keeping them in circulation for free. We accept donations of any unwanted books and hold events to redistribute them to anyone who will appreciate them.
Our organization was founded in 2012. Our vision and passion was born after a wave of claims heralding the end of the book, its death signaled by the rise of e-readers and tablets. Never! A book goes through so many lives. Each one evolves with every new reader; imparting wisdom, growing, and changing with every cycle. We wanted to ensure that every book we could would find a new home, and bring a new person excitement and joy at its discovery.
Our regular open hours allow people to drop off donations, peruse the collections, or walk away with any books in which they are interested, all for free. We house a large collection and giant variety of books in an ever-changing stock. We accept books of any age or genre, and have a large collection of children’s and young adult books.
We are now located at 405 Velasco Street, Houston, TX 77003. The space is just south east of downtown, located near Navigation Boulevard’s shopping district, and is within walking distance of the Coffee Plant/Second Ward Green Line MetroRail station.
