Call Me Ishmael
Celebrate great books
Visit level 3 at the Central Library to hear stories recorded by book lovers on the Call Me Ishmael phone. Everyone who loves books has a story to tell about how one book or poem changed them.
From the Call Me Ishmael Website:
"How does the Call Me Ishmael Phone work? Your local librarian or indie bookstore manager acts as a curator and assigns any of Ishmael's stories to their Phone. Curators use a simple web application, their venue's wifi and a printable sign to swap in a new sets of stories. When visiting readers dial a button on the Phone, a beautifully bookish story plays through the Phone's headset."
We thank Seattle-based author Kobi Yamada for their kind donation of the Phone. You can learn more about the Call Me Ishmael Phone on their website.
