St. Louis City Library

St. Louis City Library Sensory Story Times

Select St. Louis City 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.
