EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Students at Foust Elementary in Owensboro have a new way to inspire their inner book worms.

They have a book vending machine donated by Independence bank.

It was unveiled this Wednesday morning.

Students don’t need money to use it. They will be awarded tokens to choose a book from the machine.

School officials tell us the goal is to encourage reading outside of the classroom.

Mason Morrison was one of the first students to receive a book.

”I got Goosebumps: Night of the Living Dummy by R. L. Stine. It’s just really exciting because I love to read, especially books like this, said Morrison.”

This is the second machine the bank has donated to a local school.
