Autism & Libraries
Sensory Storytime @ Your Library

Sensory Storytime is an interactive and educational program that can be enjoyed by all children, but is especially designed for children with sensory integration challenges. It combines books, songs, movement, and therapeutic activities to stimulate all five senses and promote learning. If your child has difficulty sitting through one of the library’s other storytimes, this inclusive program of stories, songs and activities may be just what you are looking for!

Who can attend?: Any child ages 1 to 7 years old can attend with a parent/caregiver.

Pre-registration Required: A small group is part of what makes Sensory Storytime effective and engaging for the children participating. Please pre-register for these events by calling the hosting library or following the registration links below.

Before Storytime: Each hosting library has prepared a "Visual Guide" to prepare children for storytime. It includes pictures of the building, storytime room, and library staff. View this guide together with your child before the event to help prepare them for their visit to the library and storytime. All Visual Guides are also linked from individual libraries webpages. Go to Locations & Hours and click on your library to see if a Visual Guide is available.
