What Is Sensitive Santa?
These special Santa visits are designed specifically for children with sensory or other special needs and their families. We understand how challenging it can be for a child with sensory or other special needs to wait in line, be overwhelmed with noises, sounds, and smells, and then rushed to visit a person they don’t know very well. The 10 minute slot is much longer than typical Santa visits at the mall, giving the child time to get familiar with Santa and warm up to the idea of interacting or talking to him, rather than being rushed through the visit.
Since the library is still not conducting in-person programming at this time, the sessions will be in a virtual format.
To Reserve Time with Santa:
Families can register online for a 10-minute virtual Santa visit during the 2 hour block. A library staff member will assign time slots and send you an email with the link and timeframe for your session. Please let us know of any special considerations so that we can best accommodate your child.
Please register today to request your family's 10 minute virtual Santa visit.
A gentle reminder:
This program is for children with sensory sensitivities (such as autism) or special needs and their families. Registration is extremely limited. We appreciate your understanding.
