Designed primarily for ages 4 to 6, the phone line greets children with piano music, an introductory greeting and a short story. The tapes include fables, ethnic tales, folk tales, a few holiday related stories and poetry. At the end of the story, the storyteller reminds children: “There are many exciting stories at the library. Come and see us soon. And remember to hang up the telephone.”
The “Dial-a-Story” line number is 708-479-6001 and it is available 24 hours a day.
