Welcome to StoryLine! 

Attention! As of mid November 2017 our phone lines are down. We are trying to work with Black Box to get them up and running again. We will post here when they are back up.

 

StoryLine is a phone system that children can call at any time (24/7) and listen to a story for free*.  The stories are read by local performing artists.  Check our calendar to see what story is playing. FYI: Storyline is 18 years old! We started in 1999 -- our first reader was then MN Governor (and SAG member) Jesse Ventura.

The best stories for read-aloud are listed under "Stories". "Lists" contains lists of stories by theme.

The goal is to increase literacy by making stories always accessible and making literature enjoyable.  The U.S. Commission on Reading report “Becoming a Nation of Readers” states that “…reading aloud to children is the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading,”  which is linked to success in school.  StoryLine is another way for children to get that all-important 20 minutes a day of reading.   And it is simple enough for a child to access independently. 

StoryLine is really very simple--just three easy steps:

    1. Pick-up the phone
    2. Dial 952-352-1350
    3. Listen to a local Minnesota actor reading a wonderful children's book.

Give it a try! Call now - 952.352.1350

*The program itself is free. Long distance charges may apply depending on your carrier. The program runs out of the St. Paul/Minneapolis metro area.
