Located at Governor Bent Elementary, Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine lets students buy a book using gold coins they earn by reading outside of school. To earn a coin students need to read 20 minutes a day for 20 days totaling 400 minutes. The machine is the first of its kind in the state and was purchased with proceeds from school book fairs.
