Founded in a thought-filled SE Portland shower by our Reader of the Pack, Dawn AM, BookCycle PDX’s core purpose is to bring free-flowing book access and drop-off points for community use. “Give when you can, take when you want.”
Our simple mantra, Bringing literacy and the love of books to your local hangouts one bookcase at a time, says it all. At the baseline, this means we offer a bookcase to a local business and a “starter set” of books all stamped with our logo. We maintain this bookcase and keep it with books ready to read. We hope to foster community of fellow bibliophiles not only through our books, but through future book-centric events and regular book reviews. This can be as big as we, collectively, make it.
