Tellabration - A Storytelling Celebration

Tellabration offers a day of free, magical storytelling on Saturday

Take part in this annual worldwide event as families of all types and sizes gather on six continents this day to hear stories, share laughter and enjoy the art of storytelling. Activities are planned at four CCPL branches. Tellabration is a great way to learn more about the art of storytelling in advance of the annual Charleston Tells Storytelling Festival set for March 14-15, 2014, in Wragg Square in downtown Charleston. Charleston Tells is presented by Charleston County Public Library.
