Since our first event on January 9th, 2013, we have given away 150,000 books!!! With an average value of $5.00 per book, we have given away over $750,000.00 worth of books!!! We could not have done this without the generosity of our many valued supporters that help us keep our bookshelves full.
VISION: That children in every family have their own books at home so that they may become better readers, perform better in school and do better in life.
MISSION: Big Rig Books is a mobile literacy outreach initiative focused on fostering recreational reading beyond the classroom by encouraging reading and providing books for children and families in economically challenged, underserved communities and underperforming schools.
The Tortuga Preserve family of students and staff would like to thank you SO VERY MUCH for allowing our students to visit and receive a book from your ‘Big Rig.’ They absolutely loved the experience and appreciate their new book! I appreciate all that you do! Thank you again for serving our school – from…
