Call for a story! StoryLine is a phone system that children can call at any time (24/ 7) and listen to a story for free. The U.S. Commission on Reading Report “Becoming a Nation of Readers” states that, "Reading aloud to children is the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading."

StoryLine’s goal is to increase literacy by making stories accessible and making literature enjoyable. And it is simple enough for a child to access independently. Kids can call and hear a new story each week read by local performing artists. Each month there is an over-riding theme and StoryLine publishes a flyer with the stories to be read aloud and a list of 20 or so additional titles for that theme.


So give it a try; call 952.352.1350
