Adventure is Calling: Pima County Public Library’s Storyline

In partnership with the Pima County Public Library, the Tucson Humanities Festival will introduce new stories through their children’s dial-a-story program. Each Tuesday in October, College of Humanities faculty members will present two new stories from around the world, one in English and one in Spanish. Simply grab a phone, dial a number, and listen to the wonderful stories. The local number is (520) 462-6345. Arivaca, Ajo, and other Southern Arizona residents should call 1-877-540-4010.

We will post all story recordings here as they appear each week. Listen in!
