Toronto Public Library has a wide range of services for children, especially when it comes to enjoying a story. Besides the ability to come and borrow books in many languages and our regular storytime programs, TPL also has a service called Dial-a-story that offers a full range of stories in thirteen different languages with more being added on a regular basis. The stories are offered either for the very young (under 7 years of age) or for children between 8 and 12.

JackandthebeanstalkSimply by dialing 416-395-5400, you and your child can listen to a lively telling of a wonderful tale. Some of the stories are from books, others are folktales, which are meant to be listened to! The stories change each day and are a delightful routine to get into with your child.

During certain times of the year the stories highlight events happening in the community. Over the summer, the stories relate to the TD Summer Reading Club theme and throughout the year the stories reflect the various celebrations taking place (May is Asian Heritage Month, February is Carribean/Black History Month and so on).

To find the information from TPL homepage, click on Using the Library on the upper menu and then on Dial-a-story from the left hand side of the Using the Library page.

Please join us and celebrate story with your children!
