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.
  • A therapy animal will be available for attendees to take a moment to socialize with in the Magazine/ Reading Room.
  • In Meeting Room A organizations serving as critical supports in our community have been invited to attend the event to share information regarding their services.
  • Drop in for some hands-on sensory activities in Meeting Room B. Unstructured, free exploration is encouraged!
  • Adults and teens can take a break in the Teen Area for coloring, games, and puzzles.
  • 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.
