June: Dial-A-Story

Dial-a-Story for June

If you love story times and audiobooks or you want to participate in library programs but don’t have access to a computer, you can simply call our special phone number to hear recordings read by librarians and special guests.  We read picture books, chapter books, poetry, short stories, original writings, STEAM/Science info, writing or art prompts, and even tips for self-improvement.  We offer a variety of recordings for every age group, for children, teens, and adults.  It’s fun for people of all ages!

Call our Dial A Story service at 234-287-2020.  (FYI- 234 is a local area code for Mahoning County.)  Anytime, day or night, 24/7!

We update our recordings each month, and typically feature special themes.  So keep checking back for new favorites, next chapters, and lots of other goodies!
