Welcome back to the blog here at Global Vending Group! This week, we wanted to highlight one Ohio high schooler who paved the way for her former elementary school to get a whole host of books. With a little help from Inchy the Bookworm, the original book vending machine is heading to Lake Park Elementary!

Inchy’s On His Way to Ohio!

This former student of Lake Park loves reading and wants to foster that love in the younger generation. The area of Ohio that Lake Park Elementary is in a book desert, an area where books and other reading materials are scarce. We’ve talked about these before in other blog posts, but the basic idea is easy enough to understand. Lake Park is a Title One school, meaning most people in the area and at the school are lower income.

Inchy’s book vending machine is perfect for these kinds of areas of the country because it offers books kids love, for FREE to the students! At locations they’re already going to anyway - their schools, too. Plus, Inchy’s book machine is perfect for PBIS rewards!

What is PBIS?

Did you know? Inchy’s book machine is perfect for PBIS rewards! PBIS, or Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, is a program that rewards students for displaying good behavior, respect, acts of kindness, or other metrics the school has decided to use. Over 20,000 schools across the county have begun utilizing PBIS Rewards to huge success! Get started on your PBIS rewards system journey today!

You can even get your book vending machine custom wrapped!
