Programs at the library for patrons with special needs

Post Date:07/07/2018

Did you know that the library has a few programs that are dedicated to patrons with special needs? It's true! The library has programs for adults, teens and kids who are on the autism spectrum, or need particular accommodations. Please note that while patrons with all abilities are welcome to library programs anytime, these are specific programs that are designed with sensory issues in mind. 

Join the Pflugerville Public Library for Sensory Storytime on Friday, July 13 from 5 - 6 p.m. This storytime is developed for children who are on the autism spectrum or have special needs and is presented at a preschool level of development. The program will begin with books, songs, and movement activities, followed by a craft and time for socializing. Bring any aids that will help your child have a more pleasant experience.

Stick around after Sensory Storytime on July 13 for an hour of library time designed to accommodate our patrons with special needs. From 6 to 7 p.m., patrons can browse the library, check out books, movies, and CDs. Public computers and printing will not be available during this hour. Special Needs Library Hour is for patrons of all ages. Register with staff in the Lantana room from 5:30-6 p.m.

On July 17, older children with special needs can enjoy the Pflugerville Fun Club from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Ages 12 - 18 can socialize with their peers and work on a hanging planter craft. This club is organized in collaboration with Ramona Gray, a special education teacher at Pflugerville High School.

The Pflugerville Public Library is located on 1008 W. Pfluger St. For more information, call the library at 512-990-6375 or send a message on Facebook
