Introducing MyBRARY: The campaign to grow a world of readers.

If you’re like us at Traveling Stories, you believe in the transformative, life-changing power of reading. That’s why we invite you to join us in outsmarting poverty by giving the gift of the written word to those who need it most.


Our expansion campaign, MyBRARY, lets you share and further our mission by establishing a library in a book-poor global village or operating your own StoryTent here in the U.S. It’s an entrepreneurial, franchise-style model that enables you to bring books where they’ll do a world of good, without the complexities of starting your own nonprofit. 

About Traveling Stories

Traveling Stories is a 501c3 nonprofit organization working to outsmart poverty one book at a time & inspire a love for reading everywhere. Your donation today gives a child the chance to fall in love with reading for the first time!

We are active both locally and internationally!

Since 2010 we have established seven international libraries and two local Story Tent programs with free literacy coaching for at-risk kids.

Our long-term goal is to establish libraries in every book-poor village around the world & to have StoryTent programs in every State!

Our strategy is to offer Traveling Stories Social Franchises for those who want to start a StoryTent or World Library, but don't want the bother of starting their own nonprofit.

See Us on KPBS & 10News!

Give financially.

Sustaining our seven international libraries and two local literacy programs takes hundreds of hours and a moderate amount of money each month. If your life has been changed by books and you would like to give a kid that same opportunity, donate today!
