Sensory Storytime

Join us for Sensory Storytime at 3 PM on the first Thursday of the month at the Putterham Branch Library! This storytime includes songs, books, and movement activities and will be followed by a free play activity. 

Sensory storytime is designed for children who may need extra sensory support or for families who are looking for a more adaptive storytime experience, but all are welcome. This program is suggested for children ages 2-7 and their families, but you can decide if it’s the right fit for your family.

In order to help us keep this program sensory-friendly, it has a limited capacity and free tickets are required to attend. You can pick up a free ticket at the desk beginning 30 minutes before the program. 

To help you and your child prepare for this program, please take a look at our social story.

Please Note: All storytimes include “sensory friendly” practices (e.g. routines, repetition, body breaks/movement, etc.). Our Sensory Storytime, however, includes additional practices such as a smaller group-size, lower lighting, lower music volume, adaptive supports, etc.
