Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine Lands at Sydnor Jennings Elementary in South Boston, VA

Just when you thought vending machines could only dispense snacks and sodas, Hitachi Energy surprises students with something even better. They’ve gifted the students of Sydnor Jennings Elementary a book vending machine. It’s every bookworm’s dream! This innovative machine allows students to trade tokens for a book of their choice. It’s fun and interactive. Is there a better way to promote the love of reading while rewarding the students for their hard work. We don’t think so.

How Does It Work?

Earning tokens is a piece of cake. Students at Sydnor Jennings Elementary earn these tokens by excelling in their studies, displaying good behavior, or participating in school events. The more tokens they accumulate, the more books they get their hands on. It’s like having a secret treasure chest filled with knowledge. And who wouldn’t want that?

A World of Choices

The best part is the variety of books available. The school stocks Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine with a wide selection of titles. There is something for every interest and reading levels. From thrilling adventures to whimsical tales, students are bound to find something that excites them. The machine is not just a source of books but also a gateway to the boundless worlds of imagination.


Hitachi Energy’s thoughtful donation is a testament to their commitment to education and fostering a love for reading. Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine is more than just a gift; it’s a magical journey through the world of books for the students of Sydnor Jennings Elementary. Thanks to this wonderful initiative, these young readers are on the path to becoming lifelong book lovers. Hats off to Hitachi Energy for their generosity and for igniting the spark of imagination in the hearts of South Boston’s bright young minds!
