TRICK OR TREATING
Going to the Library
Although the library is supportive and available at all times for individuals of all abilities, they have designated sensory-friendly hours during their regular operating hours. These hours are geared towards those individuals that are especially hesitant to attend the library and would feel more comfortable with extra visuals and supports. During this sensory-friendly time, there is an understanding atmosphere along with visual and sensory supports. Staff members have been trained in autism and will be able to support individuals with sensory needs.
