Princeton Public Library, reaching out to visitors with special needs

The Princeton Public Library in an effort to improve the comfort level of patrons with special needs has created an in house sensory kit. As a result of trustee and staff continuing education efforts, both groups agreed the addition of a sensory kit would be beneficial to improve the experience for those experiencing anxiety or restlessness.

The Sensory Kit is openly accessible on the youth services references desk. The kit currently includes, a wobble cushion, weighted lap pad, activity pillow, noise-less headphones and a variety of fidget and sensory items. The library intends to add to the collection based on patron feedback.
