Poem Bot

"My Poet, My Poem & I" poem dispenser is putting poems by great American poets—as well as the NCSU Libraries’ own bookBot—into the hands of passersby. After selecting whether you want a poem by a human or the bookBot, the dispenser prints out a poem on a pocket-sized piece of paper, and even adds photographs of you and the poet.
