In partnership with Autism-Ready Libraries from the University of Washington, the Pierce County Library System is hosting two Autism-Ready story times, including one in Graham.
The University of Washington and Pierce County Library are presenting these story times for children with sensory and learning differences as pilot programs to see how the service might help children with autism gain early literacy skills.
The upcoming story times are:
• Graham Pierce County Library (9202 224th St. E.): Oct. 22, 10-10:30 a.m.
• South Hill Pierce County Library (15420 Meridian E.): Nov. 5, 10:30-11 a.m.
Advanced registration is required, and the Library System requests that caregivers register each child they are planning to bring.

The preschool-level story times are open to children of all ages, with experiences designed for children with sensory and learning differences. Instructors will share stories, rhymes and hands-on activities during the events. The University of Washington and the Library System will make accommodations to meet a variety of sensory needs.
