Phone-in Fun at the Library!

The Library is going old-school with two new phone-in programs! Add (812) 349-3208 to your contact list, then call in regularly to hear Dial-A-Book stories and Laugh Line jokes shared by Library staff. 

A throwback to pre-internet days when people would call their libraries to hear a recording of a story, Dial-A-Book is perfect for fans of audiobooks, podcasts, or anyone who loves storytelling. Call the line each week to hear a Library staff member read a chapter from a classic book or short story. New recordings will be added on Mondays! Books and stories are chosen with teen and adult listeners in mind.
