Sensory Spaces

Event Details

Sensory Spaces are Metro area libraries offering special hours for members of the public who appreciate a sensory-friendly environment. (Click here for more details and check out the metro schedule.) 

What are some of the things you can expect at this Sensory Spaces event?

  • The library will have ear plugs, ear coverings, and more available for those who experience sensory defensiveness. 
  • The lighting will be reduced throughout the library and there will be areas for noise and quiet. 
  • Adults and teens can take a break and use the ICN Room for coloring, games, and puzzles. (Kids and families interested in coloring and puzzles will be able to find these things available in the Youth Play Area anytime the library is open, including during this event.)
  • A therapy animal will be available for attendees to take a moment to socialize with. 
  • Miss Jacque will host a drop-in Sensory Storytime in Meeting Room B that will repeat throughout the hour. (Click here for more details about this Storytime.)
  • As always our friendly staff will be on hand to answer questions and help you utilize any of the regular resources that we offer including using a computer, checking out material, and more in an environment that is safe for sensory needs.

Watch our social story for a visual aid of what to expect at the library.
