Sensitive Storytimes in St. Paul

| 1 Comment

Discover the power of literacy to address language delays, increase reciprocal interactions and build positive relationships! Trained librarians are hosting Sensitive Storytimes in St. Paul designed specifically for families living with autism. Set aside the time to be in a truly supportive environment and part of the community while learning tools for unlocking all the power of books.

  • WHEN: Tuesday, September 6 from 10:00 to 11:00 am
  • WHERE: West 7th Library, 265 Oneida Street, St. Paul 55102
  • More dates: October 4 and November 1 (same time and place)

The first half hour is story time and the final 30 minutes is set aside for parents and kids to socialize.

Sensitive Storytimes are geared for children ages seven and under who have a hard time in large groups, are on the autism spectrum, and/or are sensitive to sensory overload. Our librarian will use preschool/early elementary-level books, songs and movement during storytimes.

Registration is not required. Sensitive Storytimes are first come first served and limited to 12 families. These storytimes are not appropriate for day cares. As with any storytime at the library, an adult must be present. Siblings, therapists, PCA’s are welcome.
