SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Ever wish your child could have a story read to them at any time? Springfield Town Library has started Phone-a-Story. Simply dial 802-885-3499. A three-minute prerecorded story will be available 24/7 and updated weekly.
The stories will be chosen and read by Youth Services Librarian Michelle Stinson. “As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been missing one of my favorite components of my job. I love to read stories to children. I am very excited that we can provide this service.”
Phone-a-Story promotes literacy by entwining the written and spoken word while encouraging listening skills. Children may gain a sense of independence through learning to use the phone and it is a great opportunity to learn numbers. An excellent children’s story is just a phone call away. Call 802-885-3499 and listen to a story over the telephone. If you have questions about this or any Springfield Town Library program, please give us a call at 802-885-3108, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or find us on Facebook.
