St. Louis City Library

St. Louis City Library Sensory Story Times

Select St. Louis Public Library locations offer Sensory Storytimes. Designed for children ages 3-9, Sensory Storytimes are more interactive and provide built-in time for sensory play. Literacy-rich environments are essential to the development of all modes of language for children and public libraries help caregivers provide this exposure to all children from a young age. Sensory Storytimes include freedom of movement with more visual aids, action and sensory experiences. These Storytimes are also smaller, reducing the group size and noise level for those with sound sensitivity.

I Can Ride Bike Camp

Lydia Cox I Can Ride Bike Camp

The Lydia Faith Cox Family Foundation values people by recognizing individual uniqueness and celebrating diversity. We focus on abilities rather than disabilities, as we work for the highest level of success for each camp participant. There are many factors that contribute to success: attendance, numbers served, percentage of children who can ride a 2 -wheel bike independently at the conclusion of camp and parent/guardian program feedback. On average, 80% of our camp participants can ride a typical two-wheel bike independently by the end of our 5-day program.
