Richard Kane Elementary receives grant for Bookworm Vending Machine

Richard Kane Elementary received a $3,000 grant from Walmart Distribution Center to purchase a Bookworm Vending Machine. Casey's General Store on Adams also gave Kane a $250 grant to purchase books for the machine. 

The Bookworm Vending Machine holds approximately 200 to 300 books and operates by a custom coin mechanism designed for tokens. Tokens are earned by students participating in their school's rewards program and grade-level appropriate books are selected and vended by the students.
