Canceled and Rescheduled - Children's Sensory Story Time Support Group

Rescheduled for the snow date: Tuesday, February 26

Join fellow youth services librarians to share best practices for sensory story times and inclusive library programs and services. We will be discussing community connections, sensory activity ideas, and programs/services beyond story time.

Please bring your PR materials for your library's upcoming sensory programs so that the group can help with promotion!

Agenda:

  • Performers offering programs suited for children with special need. (Maria Cotto will share a list of performers). 

  • Coordinating a Sensory Special Event to promote our libraries, programs, partner organizations, and to connect with families in our communities. (Potential annual event).

  • Sensory activity ideas.

  • Questions that may have come up during your sensory story time.

  • Experiences implementing Sensory Story Time or other sensory programs in your community.

All materials and ideas generated from this meeting will be collected on the Children's Sensory Story Time Support Group LibGuide.

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 Story Time Support Group please contact Maria Cotto at risensorystorytime@gmail.com and Babs Wells at babswells2012@gmail.com.
