Sunderland Public Library is pleased to offer a Sensory Toy Collection for patrons to borrow or enjoy in the library. Our Sensory Toy Collection is comprised of toys, games, learning tools, and comfort objects that provide sensory stimulation. Sensory Toys are particularly helpful for people on the autism spectrum, but all children can benefit from and enjoy their use. We encourage children, parents, teachers, and other educators and caregivers to borrow our Sensory Toys.
For a full list of the Sensory Toys in our collection, please browse our online catalog.
Most of our Sensory Toys are available through Interlibrary Loan. If you are unable to visit Sunderland Public Library in person, you are able to order most of our Sensory Toys to be delivered to your local library at no cost to you. Please contact us to learn more about this service.
The Sensory Toy Collection is available thanks to a Library Services and Technology Act Grant provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, and thanks to the generous support of the Friends of Sunderland Public Library, Inc.
