Sensory Story Time

Quiet and Calm Sensory Story Time is especially for families with children aged 1-5 who have sensory challenges that make attending a standard Rhyme Time or Story Time difficult.

Williams Landing Library Lounge is a unique library space that allows us to use the entire room for our Story Time. The lights are dimmed, and we make it a quiet and calm space for everyone.

The sessions include songs with no backing tracks, visual timetables, and a limit on the number of people (bookings required) to allow for the best experience possible for our attendees.
