Frances Browne Storytelling Chair designed for Twin Towns Library

Storytelling Chair



The Library Service are issuing a sneak peak of the new storytelling chair commissioned for Twin Towns Community Library. Based on the book by Stranorlar born author Frances Browne, ‘Granny’s Wonderful chair’, this chair promises to be the focal point in the new library. The library is located in The Base Enterprise Centre in Stranorlar.


The chair was designed and created by Alan Hanafin Design who won the contract after an open call to furniture makers.  The chair will be large enough to accommodate two people so that children can snuggle up with their parent or grandparent and enjoy a shared reading experience.


Speaking about the project, Senior Librarian Donna Cavanagh said ‘Libraries have an important role to play in a child’s early literacy development and part of that role is to provide a vibrant colourful space that engages and inspires children to read. The addition of this storytelling chair will help us provide positive literacy experiences for the children who visit Twin Towns Library.’


The chair will be officially unveiled later in the year and library staff are very excited about unveiling it. More information will be available at that time. For more information on the library service visit
