Book Vending Machines
Let us help!
FAQ’s about our book vending machines:
How are vending machine sites selected?
How about donating books to several cities throughout the summer?
How are the cities where vending machines are placed chosen?
The vending machine cities are chosen based on several criteria, including a commitment to cities where JetBlue flies and where book deserts exist. Through our research, book deserts have been identified as high poverty communities that have limited access to age appropriate books for children. To date, JetBlue and our partners have donated over $3 million worth of books through the Soar with Reading program. Since launching our free book vending machine initiative, we’ve brought our book vending machines to Washington, DC; Detroit, MI; Fort Lauderdale, FL, and San Francisco, CA donating 100,000 books to children in each of these cities.
