Children's Sensory Story Time Support Group

Join fellow youth services librarians to share best practices for sensory storytimes and inclusive library programs and services. We will be discussing community connections, sensory activity ideas, and ASD inclusive Summer Reading Program ideas. Partcipants are invited to bring to the meeting:

  • the name of an organization, department, or agency that you have/would like to connect with to promote your programs and services, or for future collaboration
  • a successful sensory activity you have used (please include a materials list and a "how-to")
  • activities for hands-on programming or for an activity log that can be used for the 2019 Summer Reading Program (the 2019 SRP theme is space, and the slogan is "A Universe of Stories)

The Sensory Story Time Support Group is a grassroots community of practice developed and faciliated by Maria Cotto at the Pawtucket Public Library and Babs Wells at the Greenville Public Library. The Sensory Storytime Support Group seeks to empower youth services librarians to better serve children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families by expanding programming, outreach, partnerships, and resources that welcome all abilities. For more information about the Sensory Storytime Support Group please contact Maria Cotto at risensorystorytime@gmail.com.
