Happy March! If you’re looking for a St. Patrick’s Day story to share with your community this month, check out these two titles we’ve licensed from UK-based Storynory.com:
Saint Patrick: an 8-minute non-fiction story about the life of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. Because St. Patrick was a Christian saint, there are of course references to religion in this recording. But we hope that whatever families believe, they will find St. Patrick and the legends associated with him to be fascinating.
A Spooky Irish Story: in this traditional Irish ghost story, a woman is visited by horned witches. This 8-minute recording is a little bit scary, but for what it's worth, my Kindergartener loved it!
We invite you to join us for an upcoming Dial-A-Story Chat event. In these casual forums, we will discuss ideas for optimizing your Dial-A-Story service to connect with as many community members as possible. Maybe you need advice about navigating the Storytime Commons or finding stories in languages other than English. Perhaps you’d like tips on recording your stories without that weird grainy sound in the background. Or maybe you have some great stories or ideas to share with your colleagues. Bring all your questions, tips, and ideas! A friendly LibraryCall Content Developer will facilitate.
Dial-A-Story Chat: Feedback, Solutions, Sharing-- this Friday!
