Riverside Library is offering a fun sensory storytime for adults with developmental challenges.

The storytimes will include music, art, and other sensory activities, along with stories and rhymes and will focus on two high-interest chapter books. Freckle Juice by Judy Blume in February and The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary in March.

This program is geared to adults with developmental challenges and their support persons.

“We are very pleased to be offering this new program,” says Fiona Bruce, Public Service Librarian at Riverside Library, “which came into being after we were asked by parents if we had any programs they could attend with their adult children. Adult Sensory Storytime will allow developmentally-challenged adults and their caregivers/support persons to attend a program specifically designed for them.”

Adult Sensory Storytime is offered every Tuesday and February from 10:30am to 11:30am at Riverside Library, located at 6305 Wyandotte Street East.
