Hello and welcome back to the blog here at Global Vending! Today, we wanted to share a recent Inchy story! Inchy’s newest venture takes him to a southern Texas elementary school. Kyle Elementary School in El Paso, Texas is installing its very own book vending machine.

This book vending machine, like all of Inchy’s others, dispenses knowledge in the form of books to eager children, rather than sugary snacks or bubbly drinks. Teachers and educators at the elementary school have been wanting to bring this kind of book dispensing machine after they held their read-a-thon in March last school year.

We’ve mentioned some other book machines that have been installed in Texas recently, you can find those mentions on our blog! This machine is the third in elementary schools in the Austin ISD, with the others being at Pleasant Hill and McBee.

The machine is filled with rows of books for each grade level’s reader. Students receive a special gold inchy token to take to the book vending machine when they’ve read a number of books. The best part? The kids get to keep their books to grow their own libraries!

Inchy and PBIS Rewards

The original book vending machine is perfect for your school’s PBIS Rewards! PBIS, or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support, is an initiative that encourages good behavior and can help to develop better students. How does PBIS do it? By recognizing and rewarding acts of kindness and academic achievement.

Did you know that over 20,000 schools across 44 states use PBIS rewards? It’s true! The success of the program and its continued adoption speaks for itself.

There are ways to obtain the funds to fuel the education of your students, we even have a series of posts about it! Investments in our children’s future are a win for everyone.
