Book Box Vending

The Book Box Vending machine project is fueled by community members like you! Created with an initial grant from Better World Books, the Book Box is maintained by the staff and volunteers at the Effingham Public Library. The Book Box dispenses a curated selection of donated books, completely free of charge. No strings attached! We’re excited to see the project grow and hope to reciprocate the generosity of our community.
