Since our first event on January 9th, 2013, we have given away over 225,000 books!!! With an average value of $5.00 per book, we have given away well over a MILLION DOLLARS 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.
John and Kathy, We wanted to thank you again for bringing the "Big Rig" to our school! It means so much to all of us! Your kindness and compassion are unmatched! Enjoy your summer!

We truly appreciate your visits. Many of my parents who came on Back to School Night last week asked about the books their child had brought home. I explained about your Big Rig Books truck and your mission. They were very impressed and very thankful that you are doing this. My students loved the books…
