Clare Library Accessible Hour
Clare library service will commence an accessible hour in 1 hour slots on Tuesdays and Thursdays in each full time branch from 1st December 2021 from 11.30am to 12.30pm.
At this time children and adults with additional needs are encouraged to visit the library to avail of library services.
Parents with children on the autism spectrum and those children who require introductory information on what a visit to the library consists of should view our social stories below for the branch they would like to visit.
The social stories have been prepared with all in mind not just those on the autism spectrum. They will allay any fear or anxiety of coming into the library space and inform clients of what to expect from a library visit. There may on occasion be other activities happening in branches during these times e.g. a class visit but this should not detract from the use of the library during the “accessible hour”.
