Description

Merton's Sensory Libraries 

As part of project sense  all of Merton’s children’s libraries now have a unique theme with sensory equipment and specialist SEND book stock, specially adapted toys and equipment that can be borrowed.

Step into the heart of the jungle and meet Tarzan and his animal friends. Watch out for coconuts in our palm trees and hear the parrots squawking to the jungle rhythms at Wimbledon’s rain forest themed sensory library

All of our staff have been trained in disability and autism awareness, visual and hearing impairment training. We have dark dens, ear defenders, sunflowers lanyards all of which can be borrowed during a visit to the library. We can help tailor your visit to the library and if a child has sensory overload needs, we can reduce lighting, remove equipment, provide dark dens and do whatever is required to assist with your visit. We can also inform you of our quieter times or arrange for you to visit the library in the morning and have exclusive use before the library is open to the general public at 9.30am.
