Kids at P.S. 61 Arthur O. Eve School of Distinction have access to a new vending machine- but it’s not filled with snacks or drinks. 

A new book vending machine was just unveiled at the school’s library, part of an effort to encourage reading and to get kids excited to learn. 

Students will receive tokens through a rewards system consisting of rotating classroom visits to the vending machine each month. 

Many of the books inside of the vending machine were donated by the community action organization and the Teacher’s Desk.
