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.
On behalf of the Community Consolidated School District 180 Board of Education, I would like to thank you for the generosity and dedication to education that you have extended to the students at our district. Thank you for your graciousness and your generous donation of thousands of books for our hundreds of students. I know…

I just wanted to thank you for the books that you gave me. I really appreciate you giving us two books. Now that I have books that I can read every day, because I just stay inside seeing TV and doing nothing. I can practice my reading, thank you.
