What is Sense-Ability?
Sense-Ability aims to offer positive library experiences for people with sensory or additional educational needs. It strives to develop sensory friendly, accessible library services for the people of Leitrim, Sligo and Roscommon. It aims to provide a sense of belonging, a sense of space, a sense of welcome and a sense of support to individuals of all abilities, their families and caregivers. Through consultation with relevant professionals, extensive staff training, a programme of events and the development of new and exciting spaces and services, Sense-Ability gives everyone the ability to use library services in an inclusive, safe, non-judgmental way.
