Inchy the Bookworm Book Vending Machine Featured on ABC WFTS Florida News

Valrico, Fla. -- Inchy the Bookworm found a new home at Lithia Springs Elementary School! We’re so proud to see the bookworm vending machine in a new school, and love and appreciate the attention that WFTS Tampa Bay provided! We’ve had bunches of orders for the Book vending machine all over the country, but it doesn’t change the feeling we get when we see the reactions on the kids’ faces.

One 3rd grade girl in the video is featured in the story who was humorously quoted in saying,

“I thought it was completely impractical…. BECAUSE IT SHOULD HAVE CANDY!” but she came around.. eventually proclaiming "Hey that actually has some cool books in there."

Barb Mittelstadt is a fourth-grade teacher who was responsible for convincing the administration, PTA and donors to bring Inchy to the Florida elementary school. Barb hails from Buffalo NY herself, where we are based out of.

The machine comes with custom Inchy the Bookworm tokens that allow whatever student you choose to have magic access to the books within the machine. The faculty at Lithia Springs Elementary School in Valrico uses the coins to provide students with a reward. We’ve seen several different variations of how to best distribute the coins, but the options are endless!
