What: Story time over the phone; Where: Your house; When: Any time; Cost: FREE
When I was at the library a few weeks ago, I saw a little slip of paper on the desk advertising Touch Tone Tales so we decided to check it out when we got home. Touch Tone Tales is a phone number that you can dial to hear a story. We heard the story of the Klutzy Duckling complete with sound effects last week. There is a new story each week.
The first time I called, we got through on the first try. This was about seven in the evening. I tried to call a few days later and it was busy for about ten minutes. When I tried to call this morning, it took about three minutes to get through. Right now, they are running a story about the Gingerbread Man.
Touch Tone Tales are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and it is a free service of West Florida Public Library.
Just call 850.595.1219.
