What is Sense-Ability?


Sense-Ability is an exciting new Library Service launching in May 2021.

Sense-Ability aims to offer positive library experiences for people with sensory needs including those on the Autism Spectrum, those with Developmental Coordination Disorder/Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Disorder, Dyslexia and others with additional needs. It strives to develop sensory friendly, accessible library services for the people of Sligo, Leitrim 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.

Sense-Ability is delivered by the library services in Leitrim, Sligo and Roscommon and is supported by the Dormant Accounts Fund through the Department of Rural and Community Development
