The Route 9 Library Sensory Room is for visitors to modulate the levels of sensory stimulation to best meet their personal preference to facilitate literacy. This room can be utilized to create a calm, quiet environment, a stimulating and alerting environment, and everything in between. The Sensory Room is for YOU and YOUR needs!

During these hours staff from Autism Delaware will be available to help you set up the room to meet your needs.

Open Hours for the Rte 9 Sensory Room are:

  • Wednesdays from 4 PM – 8 PM
  • Saturdays from 10 AM – 1 PM.

Can’t make it during those times?  Attend our training and you will be able to use the Sensory Room on your own schedule!
