Dial-A-Story

Would you like to find a safe, inexpensive, educational, and entertaining activity for your children?

Any day of the year, any time of the day, your child can call Dial-A-Story at 660-885-4400 and listen to a recorded classic folk tale, short story, fairy tale, or myth. Each story lasts approximately three minutes. Dial-A-Story is an outreach service offered to the public by the Henry County Library.

The Library purchased the first Dial-A-Story machine in 1977, using endless loop 8-track tapes. Since then two replacement machines have been purchased, one in 1980 and one in 2004. The newest machine features completely digital technology. The Telematic III has 133 stories available, some with seasonal and holiday themes.

Dial-A-Story answers 2000 to 3000 calls a year and is updated weekly.

Stories change on a weekly basis.
