About the Sensory Space
Danbury Library’s Sensory Space is equipped with a range of furniture and items that provide visual, tactile, auditory, and proprioceptive stimuli.
The purpose of the space is to provide an environment that offers the opportunity to manage stress and anxiety, work through emotions, explore the senses, and improve focus.
Individuals of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate within the space.
