Autism Friendly Chill-Out Sessions at Woolston Library.

For the sessions the meeting room will be set up with low lighting and large, portable sensory equipment available. Additionally bean bags and a range of books will be utilised to create a comfortable calm space for families to use, either to stay in or dip in and out of as they use the full range of library resources and services elsewhere in the building.  They welcome chewys, ear defenders, pushchairs and any other aids you want to bring. A social story and shoe park will be available for the events.
