Lyman Hall's Book Vending Machine

I am the Media Specialist at Lyman Hall Elementary in Gainesville, GA. Students at my school love to read and can't wait to get their hands on new, high interest books! Nearly all students at Lyman Hall are on free and reduced lunch. When the book fair comes around, they are   so excited, but most don't have the means to purchase. I am fundraising for a book vending machine that will reward students who complete reading goals, math goals, behavior goals, etc.! Students will be given a special gold token that will allow them to "buy" a book from the  Inchy the Bookworm Vending machine. Students will absolutely go wild for the opportunity to earn a gold token!


I would love to have this project funded within the first month of school!

Below is the quote provided to me for the Book Vending Machine. I have fundraised over the past year and have enough money to fund the books that will stock the machine.
