“Both of my children just love everything about their local library. The children’s librarian works beautifully with kids of all ability levels, and my son has always been included in activities and accepted for who he is. There are after-school programs available almost any school day as well as summer programs. On alternating Tuesdays there is either a Pinterest club (where kids get to do a fun craft), or a Lego free-build club. My oldest, who is on the spectrum, attends any and all programs, schedule permitting. We cannot say how much this library means to us! The entire staff is very welcoming to the patrons and the library has a beautifully decorated children’s room with many comfy chairs and even book-themed stuffed animals for snuggling up with a good book. Both of my son’s leave their programs with big smiles on their faces and usually some original art for us to hang at home.” Check out their Calendar of Children’s programs and events FMI.

Sensory Alerts: Quiet spaces available. “There are two floors available, so there is always somewhere to go if a few minutes are needed to recompose. The seating upstairs is very comfortable and the stuffed animals available to cuddle can be very soothing. Should a more private area be needed, I am sure the staff would be willing to assist.” “The toilets are LOUD when flushing.”
