Think outside the box!
You have a great Dial-a-Story service, now what?
It's time to think about your service in a whole new way. Check out some of the creative ways libraries are using Stories in the Cloud:
- Offer full length adult titles - local nursing homes love to call the service on speaker phone and play it for their residents
- Reach out to local elementary schools. With many schools offering remote learning, teachers are incorporating Dial-a-Story into their curriculum
- Feature guest readers every month. Reach out to the mayor, police chief and other local "celebrities" to read a story for your patrons
-Market your Dial-a-Story everywhere! Website, Facebook, Twitter and in your branch
-Create a treasure hunt! Have one of your readers say a secret word at the end of one of their stories. Anyone who finds the word and brings it to a librarian gets a prize.
