Adult Sensory Storytime

We had a lot of fun today in our Adult Sensory Storytime at Riverside Library.  First we finished another chapter in our Nancy Drew mystery “The secret of the Old Clock,” and then we had a great discussion about what we think Nancy should do next to solve the mystery.

For our activity we listened to Claude Debussy’s “Clair du Lune,” and talked about how the music makes us feel.  Everyone enjoyed listening to the piece and thought it sounded calm and peaceful.  We then coloured triangles to reflect these feelings.  After piecing the triangles together to create a circle mandala, it was really interesting to see that everyone chose similar colours.

Adult Sensory Storytime is a program for adults with special needs and their support person.  It currently runs every Tuesday morning at Riverside Library from 10:30 -11:30.  In the fall we will also offer this program at Budimir Library; the first session will take place on Wednesday, September 17th from 2:00-3:00.

    I am a librarian in Edgecombe County, NC. We are working with a local residential facility for adults and would like to enhance our storytimes there. We would also like to start a similar program here at the library. Can you point me toward some resources? Do you have ideas you can share? Thanks!

    I love this idea and would like to bring it to my area of Mooretown (close to Sarnia).
    Could you possibly share some of your ideas so I can use them or add to them for the Mooretown library? It is wonderful you have this. Great idea!
