Dial A Story (416-395-5400) Expands

    Popular Service Reaches Hundreds of Children Daily

    TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Toronto Public Library recently added Gujarati
stories to the Dial A Story (416-395-5400) phone line.
    Dial A Story, Toronto Public Library's popular telephone story service
for children, answered over 316,000 calls last year, almost 900 happy callers
a day!
    Dial A Story provides stories for younger children (7 and under) and for
older children (up to 12) 24/7. Stories rotate on a daily basis so children
hear a different story every day. Stories are available in 11 languages,
including Cantonese, English, French, Italian, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese,
Somali, Spanish, Tamil and now, Gujarati.
    Dial A Story even features special guests as readers. Storytellers in the
past have included Mayor David Miller, Blue Jays players and dancers from the
National Ballet of Canada. You never know who you will meet up with on Dial A
    Stories in Urdu are planned for later this year.
    Dial A Story is generously funded in part by Bell.
