The UTA Library has installed a short story dispenser that delivers literature, both classic and contemporary works of art, in a vending machine style.

The dispenser delivers literature, both classic and contemporary works of art, in a vending machine style. Users can select whether they want a one, three or five-minute story by pressing a simple button. The dispenser will then print a randomly selected short story on a scroll type paper. “This machine allows our community to take printed literature on the go,” said Rebecca Bichel, UTA dean of Libraries. “We want to encourage literacy and the short story dispenser allows us to present great writing easily packaged for instant gratification. This is a way for the library to support and encourage literacy in a new way.”
