In March 2008, Shandon Loring told the very first story at the newly christened West of Ireland Library & Cultural Center. 

Thousands of stories, hundreds of authors, dozens of genres and an entire decade later, we're still telling stories.  For Volume 10: Celebrating a Decade of Seanchai Library, we'll be telling our own story.

Seanchai Library believes that stories are a critical part of the human experience, and that we are writing our own stories each and every day.  Through sharing literature and storytelling, we step outside of the everyday to examine, express, and envision. Stories are important to who we are, and where we are going.

Join us as we celebrate ten years of stories told, and dream of the stories yet to come.

Take a stroll through A Decade of Seanchai Library, a retrospective wander from our beginnings in the West of Ireland, through our years with the Community Virtual Library, our expansion to the Kitely Grid, to the present time.  Images, artifacts, media links all come together to share the story of telling stories.
