About

The owners say:

Book-Cycle is a grassroots UK based volunteer run Charity. We seek to empower communities both here and in developing countries through the provision of free books and educational resources. We also encourage the reforestation of rural England by offering free trees and information on self-sustainability.

All of this is achieved through your kind donations at our 'free' bookshops and shelves located in community spaces.

Book-Cycle also works to benefit the local community; establishing projects to encourage self-reliance through home food growing, engaging in global issues and promoting wildlife through the planting of trees. We also provide free internet access, seed banks, independent film screenings, documentary archive, 'Bring Your Own Art' exhibitions and a variety of workshops too!

Book-Cycle Orrell was created after the closing of libraries by local governments due to national funding cuts. The aim was to keep book facilities open and running for the people, by the people within these communities. Proceeds generated through donations for books are used to keep the bookshops running, initiate projects locally and send educational resources to children in developing countries.
