Early Literacy: Stories to Go

Helping children get ready to learn to read!

About Stories to Go



The Contra Costa County Library’s Stories to Go collection offers dozens of grab-and-go kits for families and educators. Each kit contains: five theme related books, one toy or puppet and two laminated sheets all housed in an all-natural blue carrying bag. The Stories to Go collection is intended to enhance the joy of reading at home and/or at school. Each theme was carefully chosen to help children get ready for school and develop their early learning skills. The Stories to Go kits are paid for by a generous donation from the Wilruss Children’s Library Trust, which was established by Orinda residents, Russell and Wilma Storms. The Storms’ wanted to help young children develop a love of reading and enhance library services.
