A new, early learning story time geared towards children ages 10 and under who have a hard time in larger story time groups, are on the autism spectrum, or are sensitive to sensory overload is beginning at two branches of the Seattle Public Library System. All appropriate aged children are invited to any of the story times, but this story time may be more enjoyable for some children with autism. Librarians will use preschool-level books, songs and movement during the story times.

Sensory Story Times: 10:15 a.m. on Saturdays, Sept. 7 – November 23

(Alternating between the Columbia City and Greenwood Branches)

These story times are limited to 15 families.

Registration is required; please call 206-684-4086 to register.

Go to www.spl.org/sensorystorytime for more information including the visual story time schedule, links to the songs, and the detailed schedule.
