Inchy's Landing in Lancaster! Ephrata Area Is Installing Book Vending Machine Following over $50k in Grants


A few weeks ago, in the Lancaster, PA area the Ephrata Area school board held a meeting approving nine venture grants for the district in the upcoming school year, totaling slightly over $52k. One of those grants is earmarked for Highland Elementary School’s students in the form of a book vending machine!

You know what that means… Inchy is installing a new book vending machine in Lancaster, PA!

The Ephrata Area Education Foundation is dedicated to inspiring academic achievement, supporting innovation and offering opportunities for children and students in the Ephrata Area School District.

Inchy’s original book vending machine dispenses free books to kids for their positive behavior, using special gold inchy tokens. It’s a perfect fit for your school’s PBIS rewards program! PBIS, or Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is a way to reinforce academic achievement and positive behavior in your student body.

There are over 20,000 schools in 44 states using PBIS rewards systems. With Inchy the Bookworm’s PBIS rewards, students are awarded a unique Inchy Token to use at the machine to select a book of their choice. The school faculty awards deserving students for following PBIS guidelines, or by their own rewards policy!

Educators and Children love Inchy The Bookworm's Vending Machine!

The ways to obtain funds to give students better education are here, you just have to seek them out. An investment in any sort of children’s education, but especially reading, is a win for all. We talked earlier about ways to fundraise, but you can also consider this as another tool in that belt.
