The Morris County Area Public Libraries are hosting the first annual Northern New Jersey Autism and Special Needs Fair, open to the public and targeting families with special needs with an emphasis on autism. The main goal of the event is to help special needs families find and connect with various organizations that provide much needed education, resources, services, and information. Each year we plan to provide sensory story times and activities for the participants while their parents or guardians speak with the attending organizations. With your award $2,372.72 , we plan to purchase sensory tools and toys to be used during the fair for the attending families. These resources will be available to all of the libraries throughout the year to continue to hold sensory story times/activities/programs to service the families.
