A vending machine has recently been installed in Southbridge, Massachusetts. But this vending machine is unlike any other, this little red machine dispenses knowledge to eager children! I’ll have your students exclaiming “is it a library? Is it a new vending machine for lunch?” No, it’s Inchy the Bookworm’s Original Book Vending Machine!

Bringing the love of reading to these students is the dream of many teachers, administrators and other faculty members. With Inchy’s book vending machine, the fun of reading gets an extra shot in the arm by way of a familiar vending interface!

Inchy’s book machine is great for students who might not get as excited about the book fairs as their classmates do for many reasons. Maybe they’re not a huge fan of the crowd when the entire grade treks over to the library. Maybe their parent(s) hadn’t sent them with enough money to get the book they wanted. Those anxieties can relax when a school has the Inchy book vending machine installed. Smaller groups of their class go up to the machine, and the best part is it’s FREE for the students to get their books!

That’s right, Inchy’s book vending machine doesn’t run on cash. Instead, it runs by being fed with special gold tokens that students receive for a variety of reasons, like displaying kindness, meeting academic goals, showing improvements and much more. The students love being given a new world to explore in the form of a book, and their classmates find fun in cheering them on as the book hits the retrieval area.

Eastford Road Elementary School’s book vending machine is filled to the brim with age-appropriate books in both English and Spanish, and the reading program is so successful that books fly off its shelves.
