Sensory friendly

The library is seeking feedback and opportunities to collaborate with community to make the library more autism-accessible and inclusive to families with autistic members.

 

Sensory friendly afternoons

The library can get loud, so to ensure all members of the community feel comfortable we are providing dedicated time when the library will be a quiet space.

Sensory friendly afternoons are held on the first Friday of every month between 3.30pm and 5.00pm.
