How Does It Work?

  Share and use copyright-cleared stories with other libraries in our Storytime Commons.

  Record your own stories with any computer or smartphone, then upload to the LibraryCall cloud.

Add a Library Dial-A-Story Widget to Your Website!

Add our "Now Playing!" widget to your website to keep your patrons informed and share resource guides. Website visitors can listen to the current story without calling.

We produce printable "Read-Along Guides" for all of our stories. If you're recording your own stories, you can include your own Read-Along Guide too!

Create your own "cover" image for your website widget, or use one from our library.
