Sensory Friendly Storytime
Sensory friendly storytimes are tailored to meet the needs of youth with sensory issues and their families, engaging children through movement, music, stories and play. While open to all children, sensory friendly storytimes are geared toward children on the autism spectrum, those with sensory integration challenges, or children who have difficulty sitting.
For children ages 2-8 and their families.
Storytime 1-1:30pm, playtime 1:30-2pm
It's ok to get up and move around during storytime. We provide "fidgets" if children need to keep their hands busy. If you need to leave storytime early, that's quite all right. We understand the need to be flexible.
Welcome to the library! Here's what you will see when you come visit us for storytime.

The children’s area is on the second floor. This is the elevator that will take us there.
This is the children’s area, where there are lots of toys to play with.
There are lots of books and movies to check out at the library! There are even computers to use if I need one.
This is the desk where the librarian sits. The librarian can answer any questions I have and help me find things.

When I’m ready to leave the library, I take the elevator back downstairs and check out my books. I can either use the self-checkout machine or ask a friendly staff person for help.
Bye-bye, Anchorage Public Library! See you next time!
