Families with children ages 12 and younger with special needs are invited to attend sensory-friendly storytimes each month at the South Garland Branch Library.

Storytime gives children the freedom to move, sing, and play within a structured program. The sensory-friendly storytimes will be interactive and feature a visual schedule, carpet squares, fidget toys, and earmuffs. The events will focus on built-in playtime with movement activities, such as bubbles, sensory bins, and balance beams, as well as craft time to promote exploration and socialization. 

2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25.
South Garland Branch Library

This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Nicholson Memorial Library System. Caregivers are asked to stay with their children and engage in the activities. Siblings may also attend.
