Special Access Browsing Hour at ICPL

by on June 5th, 2017

The Iowa City Public Library will open at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 17, so individuals with autism and their families can enjoy the Library in a calm and welcoming environment.

ICPL’s Special Access Browsing Hour is open to individuals of all ages on the autism spectrum, as well as their family members and caregivers.

June’s special access browsing hour will include Therapy Dogs of Johnson County and a special music therapy program presented by West Music at 9:15 a.m. in the Storytime Room. Attendees also will have the opportunity to create a sensory toy that replicates the motion of tornadoes. This activity promotes sensory learning, which encourages children to use scientific processes while they play, create and investigate.

The Library will use natural lighting throughout the building to accommodate those with light sensitivity. Individuals on the autism spectrum and their family members can also sign up for the Library’s 2017 Summer Reading Program, Build a Better World, during this time.

ICPL will open to the general public at 10 a.m. For more information, call the Library at 319-356-5200.
