Year of Stories 2022 - Object of My Desire

In 2022, Scotland will celebrate the Year of Stories. Do you have a treasured object or item? Something that you hold dear because of the special memories it has for you and the feelings it evokes?

The 'Object of My Desire' project has been supported by the Year of Stories 2022 Community Stories Fund. This fund is being delivered in partnership between VisitScotland and Museums Galleries Scotland with support from National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to National Lottery players.

We would like you to share the story of your "Object of My Desire" and celebrate our Year of Stories here in West Lothian.




Come along to your local library and share your story with other people sharing theirs.

Andy Manders


The story-telling & writing session will be led by writer Andy Manders and will aim to help participants develop their story, capture its significance and explore ways, including writing, to share it. Good craic, a blether and refreshments guaranteed. 

Bring your item along to your library (or a photo of it, if it's too large to bring).

To join any of our meetings below please phone the library to book your place. (For individual library contact details, opening times, accessibility information and directions please click on the library name below to be directed to the individual library webpages).

Sessions should last around an hour but you can blether for as long as you like.
