Sensory Room at Main


What is the Sensory Room?

Our specially-designed Sensory Room, located on the 2nd floor of Main Library, offers calming activities, tactile manipulatives, therapeutic equipment, and more. It allows patrons to extend their library visits in a space that accommodates sensory needs. The Room is open to anyone who would find it supportive. It accommodates up to five people (or one family) at a time and may be reserved for 30 minutes.
