LibraryCall helps libraries provide cost-effective Dial-A-Story and other phone-based services to their communities.

  • No computers? No problem.  LibraryCall serves everyone in the community — even those without smartphones, computers, or home Internet access! 
  • No phone lines required. LibraryCall is cloud-based — no need to call the phone company or IT department — and callers never hear a busy signal!
  • Choose "Say" or "Play" options for callers!  LibraryCall can play pre-recorded audio files or our bot can automatically "read aloud" text information to callers.

A shared collection of content available for your Dial-A-Story program, the Storytime Commons consists of stories we've curated, adapted and recorded as well as content we've licensed for our library customers to use. Also includes recordings customers share with one another, approved by our staff librarians.

Deliver a new story every week, in English or in English and Spanish, with no additional staff time required.

Callers dial a local number and hear your custom welcome message, a story from our Storytime Commons, followed by your custom closing message.

Stories are selected by our staff librarians from our Storytime Commons repository of high-quality children's stories.

Customize your Dial-a-Story with multiple phone numbers and using content you create. Your staff is in control of the schedule and content.

Plus, you also get access to our Storytime Commons to supplement your own recordings.
