Cape Girardeau Public library offers Dial – A – Story program

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – The Dial – A – Story program at the Cape Girardeau public library is a fun and easy way to get kids and adults alike to read more.  

It’s a monthly service where five books are picked out each month and available to be heard over the phone all month long at any time.  

This month’s theme is back-to-school.  

Cape Girardeau Public Library Youth Service Coordinator Sharon Anderson says this is an engaging way for kids to improve their reading skills. 

“We think it’s a lot of fun. It’s a good way for kids to improve their listening skills. It’s a way to interact around stories. It’s fun for families to listen together and then to tell the story again which is a nice way to help kids with their reading comprehension,” said Anderson. 

The Dial-A-Story program is made possible not only by library staff but also by The Friends of the Cape Girardeau Foundation Grant. 

“So, when people come to our library book sales, the money that we make from things like that pay for programs such as dial a story,” said Anderson.
