The Best Vending Machine EVER
Our local school held a Donor’s Choose fundraiser last year to purchase a vending machine. But… it’s not just any vending machine, it’s a BOOK vending machine.
Have you seen these before?! Instead of candy or trinkets, now kids are rewarded for their good acts or other accomplishments with a book of their choice. This school-wide incentive program recognizes students’ success and promotes a love of reading. Students could earn special vending coins for attendance, AR reading points, citizenship, and more.
I’ll be contributing some of my books to the school to use as vending machine prizes. What a brilliant way to inspire children to value books, be excited to read their hard-earned prize, and to look at books as a reward, not a chore. I love it!
Interested in this product for your school?
In case you are interested, the vending machine was purchased through Global Vending
Donor’s Choose was used to gain funds for the vending machine, as well as to purchase books to stock it with. Trays within the machine can be adjusted to fit various sized books.

This is so cool! I've never seen one of these! I showed my kids and they are so jealous. I hope to see more book vending machines in the future...and maybe a book or two of yours in it!

What a fun idea! I've seen vending machines that accept cash and even some with card readers. Is there a way to set up a vending machine like there where there's no money needed?
