Sensory Inclusive

Sensory InclusivePartnership

The Pelham Public Library has partnered with KultureCity to improve our ability to assist and accommodate guests with sensory needs. 

Objective

Our objective is to provide an inclusive and seamless experience for all guests including those with sensory needs. We strive to raise awareness of the needs and challenges faced by individuals with sensory processing disorders by supplying out Team Members with continuous training and by offering the resources and accommodations below to our guests.

Sensory Bags

Sensory bags containing special KCVIP badges, fidget tools, and noise canceling headphones. These and other resources are available for checkout (at no cost) at our main circulation desk (located at the entrance of the library) and the Children’s Services Desk (located in the back of the library on the first floor).

Weighted Lap Pads

Weighted lap pads are also available at the Children’s Services Desk upon request (at no cost).

Check Out

Sensory Bags and Lap Pads may be checked out for in library use (they are not to be taken home). You may use a Shelby County Library Card to check one out, or show your ID and sign one out as a guest.
