Montrose Elementary School’s Book Vending Machine will be used to reward students for following school rules, and will help instill a love of reading and a love of books. This vending machine will be a resource to encourage literacy in students and their families by helping build home libraries. Thank you HEF!

“I am so excited to have a book vending machine at our school.  Our students are just as excited about choosing books as if they were picking out candy or chips. Students who are not usually overly excited about books can’t wait to get one from our machine.”
