LibraryCall services, including Resource Hotline and Community Calendar, are customized for every library customer. Each service requires a one-time setup fee and a monthly subscription fee (based on the number of callers and the duration of each call). Dial-a-Story is available as a customized option or a turnkey option.
Managed Dial-A-Story Option
The fully managed, turnkey Dial-a-Story option requires no staff involvement to run your program. We provide you a local Dial-a-Story phone number and schedule a new story each week from our Storytime Commons to your storyline. No further setup or staff involvement is required, and we'll provide a monthly report detailing the number of callers. Your storyline can be Spanish or English.
Setup fee: $250 Subscription fee: $1,000/year
