The Library is excited to offer the Dial-A-Story service!
Simply call the Dial-A-Story phone line (515-981-7800) any time to hear a selection of books read aloud by library staff. Listen for as long or as little as you wish. New selections will be recorded twice a month, for infants through elementary-aged students.
In May we’re sharing books about space, and we also have a guided meditation to help anyone relax. We will have different sets of stories from May 1-14, and May 15-31. We have rhythmic picture books, nonfiction, and songs and rhymes for babies.
