Sensory Storytime is a 30-minute program with limited participation (10 children + their families). Participation is limited in order to create a calmer, quieter, more relaxed environment than a traditional Storytime. Sign-up is required. Disclaimer – The facilitators are average, ordinary librarians & assistants, we do not have degrees in early childhood development, autism spectrum issues, or any doctoral degree. We are frontline staff when it comes to directly dealing with children who have developmental issues. Often we feel the best we can do is be welcoming and friendly at regular Storytime. Sensory Storytime gives us the option to tell parents that their child has been thoughtfully considered and will be celebrated. Sensory Storytime is a journey for both the librarian and the child. Each Storytime will be unique because each month the children’s behaviors will be unique.
