For the sessions, our meeting room will be set up with low level lighting and with large and portable sensory equipment available.

Additionally, comfy bean bags and a range of books will be utilised to create a comfortable calm space for families to use.

Families can choose to either stay in or dip in and out of these sessions, as they use the full range of library resources and services elsewhere in the building.
