Join us for a free autism-friendly early opening of the British Library.
Booking for this event will open on 1 June.
This early opening is for families with children on the autism spectrum and other sensory needs. Enjoy the Library free from the hustle and bustle of the general public.
At this special early opening, you’ll get the opportunity to explore our Family Station, located on the Upper Ground Floor of the British Library and take part in a workshop in our Learning Centre.
The Family Station includes creative resources full of ideas to explore, make and play in the Library. It also has fun sensory materials and an exciting range of children’s books including tactile and braille editions.
A dedicated sensory room will also be available for children needing a quieter and calmer space.
This event is free and suitable for parents and carers with children aged 0 – 15 years and their siblings.
All visitors to this special early opening will receive a visual story in advance to provide an idea of what to expect on arrival. Please note that the Library opens to the general public at 11.00.
