Students at Laurel Highlands Middle School in rural Kentucky are now able to get their hands on some free books thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Fayette County.

The nonprofit awarded the school a $12,855 grant, which was used to install a Bookworm Vending Machine, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports.

The machine, which students can use to retrieve coins that will be awarded to them for good behavior, grades, attendance, and other achievements, was designed by Inchy's.
