We’ve expanded Sensory Storytime to five branches: Langhorne, Levittown, Doylestown, Quakertown, and Yardley-Makefield!
If your child has difficulty sitting through a traditional storytime, this inclusive program of stories, songs, and activities may be just what you are looking for. Sensory Storytimes are ideal for children who are differently abled: they may be on the autism spectrum, have sensory processing issues, or feel overwhelmed by noises or crowds.
Sensory Storytimes are 30-minute interactive storytimes using preschool-level books, songs, and activities that engage a child’s five senses in developing emerging literacy and social interaction. Following storytime, children can engage in 30 minutes of monitored social play, with toys aimed at improving fine and gross motor skills, including fidget toys and weight pads. Children are encouraged to bring a favorite lovey, toy, or fidget.
Many of the toys used during Sensory Storytimes are available in Sensory Kits that users can check out.
For dates and times of Sensory Storytimes, visit our Events calendar. Registration is required and is limited to 10 children and their families per session.
