In addition to our inclusive programs and storytimes, the library offers Sensory Storytime. This storytime, designed for children with sensory processing or special needs, welcomes children of all abilities to participate in a variety of literacy-based activities. We follow a picture schedule, offer fidget toys, adaptive seating, interactive stories and songs. After a 25 minute storytime, children can participate in sensory play activities, courtesy of an Early Literacy Grant from Target. It is best suited for children ages 3-8 with parent or caregiver.
