The Cedar Rapids Public Library is certified Sensory Inclusive through KultureCity. This initiative promotes an accommodating and positive experience for all guests with sensory issues who visit the library.
Sensory bags containing special KCVIP badges, fidget tools, noise canceling headphones and other resources are available for checkout at both locations.
Downtown: Children’s Library Desk
Second Floor (top of the stairs) Desk
Ladd: Front Desk
Weighted lap pads are also available upon request at each location. Inquire at a staff desk.
Prior to visiting the library, families can download the free KultureCity App to view available sensory features and where to access them.
There are also Social Stories for both the Downtown and Ladd Libraries on the app to provide a preview of what to expect when visiting the library. They can also be viewed on the KultureCity website and here.
