Sensory Room Launched in Clonmel

Tipperary County Council Libraries introduces the Tipperary County Council Libraries’ Sensory Service, special spaces that make our libraries more accessible to all.

Our Sensory Spaces are designed for people with sensory processing disorders, learning and development difficulties, autism and dementia. A busy public space can often be an overwhelming place to visit.

The Sensory Room at Clonmel Library provides a safe, non-threatening and calm space away from the noise and bustle of the main library. It contains a variety of visual, tactile, auditory, proprioceptive and vestibular stimuli, adjustable lighting and comfortable seating.

Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council, Cllr. Marie Murphy said that “the Sensory Room is a great addition to the many services provided at Clonmel Library. It helps to make the library more accessible and inclusive for those with sensory and additional needs. I am confident that the Sensory Room will be widely used and all are welcome to avail of this new facility.”
