This library event is open to sensory sensitive individuals and their families in order to allow them to feel free to be themselves, enjoy a calmer and quieter library.

The stereotype of a library is that of a quiet place where people can concentrate on their reading and work. In reality, libraries can be busy, noisy places that can be upsetting to some people.

The Belt Branch will open early from 8-9 a.m. for youths and adults who are on the autism spectrum or have sensory issues. Known as an Accessible Browsing Hour, the time will provide a quieter setting without a crowd.

The hour also will provide caregivers and families a chance to use the library without worrying about how their special needs members might be viewed by others if they act out in surprising manners or make unexpected noises.
