Short Story Dispenser: Printed Literature On the Go


Image de Short Story Dispenser:  Printed Literature On the GoThe 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.”

[ US ] Philadelphia airport installs 'short story dispenser' to help travelers pass time


Philadelphia International Airport appears to be on a mission to improve the traveler experience: first they made a quiet room, and now they're offering free reading material for it. [...]“Our goals are to create excitement about reading in unexpected places throughout the city and to increase public awareness of the Free Library’s programs and services,” said Reardon. “Having a kiosk at Philadelphia International Airport in the Library space there continues our outreach to people who may not be Free Library regulars, but who would enjoy a quick, accessible read."

Image de [ US ] Short Story Dispenser unveiled at Philadelphia International AirportPhiladelphia International Airport
Being stranded at the airport usually means scrolling through social media, or picking up a newspaper or magazine. But those doesn't need to be your only options at Philadelphia International Airport, where a free, no-WiFi-required alternative was unveiled Friday: a Short Story Dispenser, put in place by the Free Library of Philadelphia. The five-foot-tall, screenless kiosk is in the concourse between Terminals D and E. "We have the best — and the first, by the way — relationship between a city airport and a library," said Chellie Cameron, CEO of the airport and Philadelphia's director of aviation.

Three short story dispensers are now up and running at the Richland Library Main location at 1431 Assembly St.

The dispensers were provided to the library through a grant from the Knight Foundation. In May, Columbia was announced as one of U.S. four cities selected to receive the dispensers. [...]

“The ideal of this is to have these in the community places and events,” Tallent said. “We hope it will elevate a focus on literacy and get people interested in reading in a different way.”
