Sensory Storytime: How We Can Help You Adapt Storytime to Meet Community Needs


In this session, we will take you through the steps we followed to create a library program for children with autism and other persons with developmental disabilities (PDD). Learn about beneficial partnerships and resources to create your very own Sensory Storytime.
JENNY COFELL is a Children’s Librarian at Lethbridge Public Library, which is no small order! Jenny has reached new heights by developing innovative community partnerships, integrating play into the library, and being an effective library champion for families and children.
LAURIE DARVEAU-WILLMS is a Library Technician at Lethbridge Public Library. Places, parenting, pets, pinball, paddleboard – not necessarily in that order – sum up Laurie in a nutshell. She is also passionate about creating inclusive programming and spaces.
