Dial a story, 24/7

Bainbridge- A "dial a story" hotline is playing children's stories anytime, any day.

     A digital machine plays the stories through the phone line. Children's Librarian Tom Bush says the program gets kids' imaginations running, and helps instill in them a love of literature. He adds that it also shows the importance of libraries to future generations. "We have to market, because we can no longer just rely on people coming. We have to prove we're useful. And this is one way we prove we're a useful library to the community," he says.

     The program is funded through a grant from the United Way. If you'd like to hear a story, call 229-248-2936. They usually last about three to four minutes.
