Play. Explore. Investigate.

Sensational sensory fun awaits! Bring your little ones to the library to explore sensory learning.

Sensory play is designed to stimulate a young child’s senses—hearing, seeing, tasting, smelling, touching—and to create an early, natural introduction to the scientific processes as children play and investigate. We will provide several exciting sensory stations for your child to explore while introducing you to early learning tools to benefit your child’s development. Plus, we will provide a take-home project so you can continue the learning and fun beyond your visit! Things could get messy, so be sure to dress appropriately.
