Autism friendly libraries
All of our libraries are autism friendly and we encourage people with autism, their parents and carers to visit our libraries. Some of the things we have done are:
- introduced quieter hour from 10am - 11am every Saturday on level 3 in City Library. We avoid making any excess noise to make the library quieter and calmer to help customers with autism and other additional needs
- displayed posters in all of our libraries to promote we are autism friendly
- provided staff training
- created autism friendly user guides for each library which are available to download at Newcastle Libraries then select the library you require
- created calm zone areas in each library with autism friendly furniture.
If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our services please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to a member of staff.
