Imagine picking up your phone anytime and dialing in to hear a great children’s story – a swashbuckling adventure or something charming and funny.
The HPL children’s department is rolling out a new program that does just that.
On July 13 the library will go live with its “Dial-A-Story” program, a round the clock service where by calling 860-695-6288 children and parents can hear a recorded story read to them.
