RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander District Library recently added a program to make the library more inclusive.
"[It's] designed specifically for kids on the autism spectrum and those with sensory processing needs, but any kids and families who feel like they just want a little more laid back, hands-on story time it would be appropriate," said children's librarian Katie Kubisiak.
Kubisiak hopes 'Sensory Storytime' will make children and families feel more comfortable at the library. Kubisiak says during story time children will use movement, music, and play.
"We have more hands-on activities, more come and go as you please kind of atmosphere so that parents can feel comfortable with their kids however they interact," said Kubisiak.
The program started this week and will run Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m. through Feb. 14. The story time lasts for about 45 minutes.
