Sensory Friendly Storytime Comes to Hillside, Elizabeth and Plainfield in March

(UNION COUNTY, NJ) -- The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites children ages 12 and under to enjoy Sensory Friendly Storytime at three local public libraries in March, featuring readings by County Commissioners and other community leaders.

“Read Across America is something I look forward to every year; seeing the excitement in children’s faces as we come together and celebrate reading is one of the things that I love doing most as a County Commissioner,” said Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados. “This year, we are very proud to work with our local libraries to feature Sensory Friendly Storytime events that ensure all children will be able to participate and enjoy this inclusive, worry-free environment.”

“Storytime at the library is one of the joys of childhood, and we welcome every child to come and join in the fun with their friends, neighbors and visitors. We thank our partner libraries for helping us reach out to make Sensory Friendly Storytime a wonderful event for the young readers in our community,” said Union County Vice Chairwoman Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded.

Sensory Friendly Storytime is free of charge but registration is required in advance through Union County’s secure registration page,

Sensory Friendly Storytime is coordinated by the Union County Office for Persons with Disabilities and Special Needs in the Department of Human Services, in collaboration with the public libraries of Hillside, Elizabeth and Plainfield.
