With school back in session, there’s an opportunity to reach more young story lovers by promoting your library’s dial-a-story service through local preschools and elementary schools. My sister, a second grade teacher, has already had multiple students out on periods of quarantine this year. With Dial-A-Story, you can offer teachers like my sister a great resource to share with their students who are out of school or learning from home. We’ve also heard from some preschool teachers who enjoy listening to your stories with their students during class.
As a reminder, we have Dial-A-Story outreach templates to make it easier for you to create flyers.
Another outreach idea is to ask to have your dial-a-story service featured in school newsletters.
Are we friends?
We have fairly new social media accounts and we’d love to connect with you there! We’re on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Tag us and share your Dial-A-Story recordings, news, and accomplishments. Let us know what you’re up to and we’ll share!
