Members of the Glen Ellyn Library Foundation Board, library staff and Glen Crest students stand around the Short Story Kiosk.

Our Short Story Kiosk, generously donated by the Glen Ellyn Library Foundation last spring, has ventured out into the community and made its first stop at Glen Crest Middle School!

The Kiosk dispenses one, three and five-minute stories and poems on long scrolls resembling receipt paper. At Glen Crest, readers can choose from three categories, designated by large buttons on the machine: "Children," "Young Adult" and "Glen Crest." The latter will print original student-written stories.

We are pleased to share this fun and educational resource and look forward to the Kiosk's future travels.
