Kits are located at Children’s and Reference service desks at all library locations and can be accessed at any time for use within the library.
They are available for all ages and needs but are geared toward adults and youth with autism or sensory challenges. These kits include items that can facilitate a calming affect for people dealing with sensory issues, such as stress balls, weighted lap/shoulder pads, and noise cancelling headphones. MCDL wants the library to be a safe, calm place everyone can enjoy.
The kits were made possible through funding from Rotary Club of Medina Sunrise and a grant from Autism Speaks.
