Good Vibrations

According to an article in the September-October issue of American Libraries, some libraries are adding sensory spaces to their buildings. These are designed for users with autism, sensory processing disorders and other disabilities, giving them an area in which they can feel more comfortable. Louisville Public Library has added an Experia USA interactive game floor, which projects images that respond to play and movement. Other items added by additional libraries: an Alpha Egg chair, which muffles sound, and a Vibro-Acoustic Platform, which is a bench where listeners can feel the pulse of music. So much for libraries becoming “obsolete”, that nasty word. Take that, all you naysayers!
