The Seattle Public Library offers Sensory Story Times

The Seattle Public Library

The Seattle Public Library is offering a new story time series called Sensory Story Time beginning Saturday, Sept. 7. Sensory Story Time is designed for children ages 10 and younger who have a hard time in large groups, are on the autism spectrum, or are sensitive to sensory overload.


Sensory Story Times will be held from 10:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. the first and third Saturdays of the month at the Greenwood Branch, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N. (206-684-4086), and from 10:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. the second and fourth Saturdays of the month at the Columbia Branch, 4721 Rainier Ave. S. (206-386-1908).


Librarians will use preschool-level books, songs and movement during Sensory Story Time. Visual guides to familiarize children with meeting rooms, restrooms and parking lots at the Columbia and Greenwood branches will be available prior to the story times. The guide will also include photos of story time presenters. The presenters will sing the same four songs in the same order at each story time; audio recordings and lyrics of the songs will also be available.


Library programs and events are free and open to the public. Registration is required; call or visit the branch to register. Sensory Story Time is limited to 15 families per session and is not appropriate for day cares.
