Rattan Elementary's Book Vending Machine

Rattan Elementary has a new vending machine. But this is not your normal snack machine, it's full of books and is located right outside the library.  John Manganilla, from Atmos Energy, worked with Megan Massey, Rattan Counselor, for nine months to provide the book vending machine from Global Vending Group. Manganilla says that Atmos Energy wants to promote child literacy.  

Rattan students will be able to earn special tokens to “purchase” a book from the vending machine.  Tokens can be earned by showing great character and being a student leader.
