Special NeedsSensory-Friendly Events for Kids with Special Needs

We welcome all children who meet program guidelines to our events. However, we understand that some kids have special needs that make attending certain programs challenging.

Listed below are sensory-friendly movie screenings and encounters with outside performers. Also listed are programs that, while not designed specifically for kids with special needs, may have particular appeal.

Children's Art Show

October is Arts Awareness Month, and we will be celebrating with the annual Friends of the Library Children's Art Show. All children, preschool through eighth grade, are invited to participate. We will be accepting submissions from September 8 to 22. Click here for more information.
