Sensory Room

Our Sensory Room uses exciting technology to provide a relaxing and/or stimulating environment for people of all ages and abilities.

The space is situated within a private room adjoining the Children’s Library and is equipped with digital sensory technology including:

  • Musical touch wall
  • LED interactive bubble tube
  • Fibre optic slideglow
  • LED interactive infinity tunnel
  • LED sound-activated step light

The Sensory Room’s facilities and programmed activities support the needs of children and adults with autism, dementia, and other sensory impairment conditions, as well as offering a calming environment for those who suffer from stress and anxiety or just need a place to relax.

A member of the library staff will be available to show you how to use the equipment.
