JetBlue to stock vending machines with books

Posted: Updated:
HUNTS POINT -

Some vending machines will be offering more than just candy in the borough, thanks to JetBlue Airlines.

JetBlue is stocking vending machines with free books for children to read.

The goal is to distribute books to children with limited access to reading material so that they can build their own home libraries over the course of the summer, says Tina Klaric of JetBlue.

The airline says it will restock the vending machines with new books every two weeks.
