Autism Friendly, Quiet Tuesday Evenings at Cabinteely Library

Every Tuesday from 5pm -7.30pm from January -March

Cabinteely Library are learning different ways in which they can make the library more accessible to their users with Autism. From this January, on Tuesday evenings they will have:

• Reduced lighting

• Priority queuing for customers dealing with autism as well as extra assistance upon request

• Self-service machine on silent

• Phones quiet

• Autism assistance dogs always welcome

Our community can help each Tuesday evening by:

• Phones on silent and all calls taken outside the library

• Speaking quietly

• Chatting to children before any Tuesday evening visits to explain why the library is extra-quiet and how they can help

• Remembering to avoid light-up toys or shoes on children

• Letting the staff know any further way in which we can accommodate the autism community.
