Give us a ring for a spooky treat. Get into the Halloween spirit with some slightly scary books.

We are excited to bring stories to children (and teens and adults) via our Dial-A-Story service. Listen and use your imagination to visualize the characters. Perfect on the bus, in the car, or waiting in line! Stories updated every two weeks. Make it a habit to dial 419.745.9700 anytime you have a bit of waiting time. Add our number to your phone contacts and you’ll always have stories available.
