Sensory Storytimes are geared for children who have a hard time in large groups, are on the autism spectrum, or are sensitive to sensory overload. Preschool-level books, songs, and movements are used during these story times.

Registration for sensory story times are required. For more information about sensory story times, and to register for the program, contact Jennifer Henry at .

In addition to sensory story times, the library will hold sensory friendly movie showings in the large meeting room from 1:30pm to 3:30pm on March 26th and May 28th. On March 26th, “Shaun the Sheep Movie” will be shown. On May 28th, “The Secret Life of Pets” will be shown.

Sensory friendly movie showings are designed for children on the autism spectrum and their families. Gentle lighting and sound provide a less intense movie experience. Audience members will be free to move around, talk, sing, and enjoy the movie as they see fit. The adjacent story time room will be open for those who may need to take a break from the movie.

Parents may bring their snacks and blankets for comfortable seating. The library will provide free popcorn and bottled water. There is no registration required for this program.
