- Reading assists an individual to obtain knowledge and provides enjoyment for children’s literacy development. However, promoting literacy through a local fairy tale is challenging since children tend to be familiar with fairy tales from other countries, such as Cinderella or Snow White. Thus, proper teaching media are required to introduce a local fairy tale for children. This study used a qualitative descriptive method in order to investigate a mini library developed by social communities in Purwakarta, Indonesia. Five tutors were involved to be interviewed and study documentation was employed regarding storytelling preparation and implementation. It showed that they adapted and developed ideas of a local fairy tale to engage children in learning instructions to be more familiar with local fairy tales. During the implementation, tutors created various properties in storytelling activities. Besides, the story was delivered constantly. To sum up, story adjustment is required to boost children’s interests in preserving the local culture through literacy.
