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.”

[ US ] The Vending Machine That Spits Out Short Stories


Stories are shared many ways. They are recounted in books and magazines. They are read aloud around the campfire at night. They are randomly dispensed from stand-alone kiosks, doled out on strips of paper like grocery store receipts.
Wait, what was that last one?
Leave it to the French, with their love of Voltaire and Simone de Beauvoir, to revive literature in the era of hot takes, fast news and smartphone addiction.

Short Edition is a French company which, having had success in its native country across 150 venues, turned its attention to U.S. shores.

I loved the idea of a vending machine, a dispensing machine that doesn’t dispense potato chips or beer or coffee for money but gives you art. I especially liked the fact that you didn’t put money in. - Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola
Thusly did filmmaker Coppola arrange for a free Short Edition story vending machine to be installed in Café Zoetrope, his San Francisco restaurant.
The French-built machine is the perfect companion for solitary diners, freely dispensing tales on skinny, eco-friendly paper with the push of a button.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Technology meets with tradition in the form of a machine being used by the Free Library of Philadelphia, which is aimed at getting more people to read.
Think of this machine as an ATM for free stories.
“It has one, three, and five-minute stories. You press the button, prints out a short story on essentially receipt paper, and it’s yours to walk away with for free and read, and enjoy,” said Andrew Nurkin with the Free Library.
