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.



Take a trip 'Down Memory Lane' 


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

Andy Manders


Sessions will be led by writer and professional Storyteller Andy Manders. Join us for a cuppa, some good craic and a blether. 

No booking is required to take part, just bring yourself and your item along to the library of your choice (or a photo of the item, if it's too large to bring).
