Sensory Kits and Sensory Room

Every branch location has a sensory kit created by Lighthouse Autism Center. When a person becomes overstimulated, the items in the kit can help to calm and relax the individual.

Instead of having a sensory kit, the Main Library offers a sensory room that can be used by people with sensory processing disorders as a calming space when being in other library spaces starts to feel like too much. The room includes a bubble tube, light cubes, pop-its, a sound machine, sensory brushes, weighted blankets, and seat cushions. The room is a safe place for children with sensory processing issues, as well as those who become overstimulated and need a quiet place to relax.
