Traveling Tales

What is Traveling Tales?

The Stanislaus County Library circulates storytelling kits to those who serve children aged 0-5 in Stanislaus County. Each kit is based on a theme and contains 6-10 story books, a set of activity cards or flannel board pieces, a puppet, a music CD or tape, finger plays and instructions. After enrolling in Traveling Tales, these storytelling kits are available for check out from any of the Stanislaus County Library’s 13 branches.

Traveling Tales Goals

Regular story times enhance preschoolers’ pre-reading and verbal skills, better preparing them for success in school. Our main goal is to encourage program participants to make story time a regular activity. We do this by providing the materials and training needed to conduct a story time in their facility.

Who Can Participate?

Changes are coming! To make it easier for more people to have access to Traveling Tales we are updating the program. For now, we are currently not taking any new Traveling Tales applications. If you would like to be added to our mailing list just for Traveling Tales updates e-mail us at
