Sensory Storytime with Boston Children’s Hospital

Join us for Sensory Storytime at 6:30 PM in the Rabbit Hole at the Brookline Village Library. This storytime includes songs, books, and movement activities and will be followed by a free play activity. For this special program, we’ll be joined by a fellow from the Autism Spectrum Center at Boston Children’s Hospital  who will serve as a special guest reader and be available as an informal resource for parents following the program.

Sensory storytime is designed for neurodiverse 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 children’s desk beginning 30 minutes before the program. 

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.

To prepare for this program, read our social story about visiting the Library and read our social story specifically about sensory storytime at the Brookline Village Library
