A monthly event supporting neurodivergent families, including those with children who are diagnosed with autism, those with expressive language disorders, those who are developmentally or intellectually disabled, those who are typical, and more. We will read a few stories and give patrons a chance to interact with other families. Accommodating materials include diverse seating (bean bags, rocking chairs, and squishy seats), noise canceling headphones (patrons are also encouraged to bring their own), dimmed lighting, fidgets, a sensory break corner, and more. Held in the Library Meeting Room.
Registration required; Heggan cardholders only. Register children only, not caregivers.
