About Us

Big House Books

Big House Books doesn’t judge a book by its cover. We believe in literacy for all – including those in our correctional facilities. That’s why we’ve set out to provide books to Mississippians in prisons and juvenile detention centers. Every person has the right to educate themselves, and it’s our goal to make that a reality.

OUR MISSION: Big House Books is a non-profit, volunteer organization that sends free books by request to prisoners in Mississippi correctional facilities in order to promote literacy and be a vehicle of change for prison reform.

We are located at 133 Millsaps Ave., Jackson, MS. Check out our calendar for our weekly Book Packing Party schedule!
