Sensory Storytime

Sensory Storytime graphicSensory Storytime is an interactive, inclusive storytime geared towards children with special needs, such as autism spectrum disorders, sensory integration challenges, or short attention spans. Activities will stimulate the senses and promote learning–we will read books, sing songs, move around, and have fun!

Books, songs, and activities are on a preschool level, but sensory storytime is open to children of all ages and their caregivers. We limit the storytime to 8 families to ensure participants aren’t overwhelmed.

To register for storytime, please visit the children’s reference desk at Haggard Library or Davis Library.

We hope to see you soon!
