The Akron Summit-County Public Library is partnering with the Knight Foundation to bring short stories to Akron Children’s Hospital.
Sounding like a cash register, the French-made short story dispenser is now in the waiting room at the hospital’s surgical center.
The machine installed by the library prints out short stories on receipt paper for free. Users can choose a story of any type or one for kids.
Brandon Knoderer, of Canton, was the first person to use the machine.
