The Akron-Canton Airport is helping passengers enjoy their airport experience more by offering free short stories printed on recycled receipt paper

Ohio is making it easier for travelers to stay well-read with its new short story kiosks. Travelers departing from or passing through the Akron-Canton Airport in the midwestern state can now peruse thousands of short story titles to keep them busy while waiting in the terminal.

To create these kiosks and collect all the titles, Akron-Summit County Public Library teamed up with the Knight Foundation. The titles vary in genre as well as target reader age and are printed on recycled paper. These kiosks have also popped up in several other Ohio locations, including the Akron Children’s Hospital and The Robert K. Pfaff Metro Transit Center.

These kiosks aim to help travelers not only pass the time but perhaps actually enjoy their time waiting, helping make an experience out of the entire customer journey.
