“Dial-A-Story is a wonderful way for us to share the love of reading and storytelling. With a simple phone call, all ages can enjoy a story adventure together,” said Lucy Carney, Manager of the Children’s Library & Teen Division at Main Library. “At the same time, children will learn new vocabulary and sharpen their listening and comprehension skills, all of which contribute to greater reading proficiency. We’re very excited to offer this service to our community.”
