City in California encourages reading using interactive device kids power with their library cards.

Santa Clara County in California is trying to make reading more interesting in a society where books just don’t seem to cut it anymore. They’ve introduced a vending machine that only serves up books, in the hope of encouraging children under five-years old to start reading more often.

41 percent of Santa Clara County third-graders are not reading at grade level, a deficiency which is thought to be caused by a gap in the need and availability of early learning and literacy opportunities in Northern Sunnyvale.
