Autism friendly libraries

Dimensions provides free autism friendly training for libraries. Talk to your local library about taking the training and they could be featured on our website.

This really matters to autistic people, who are more likely to visit libraries than other people. 90% of autistic people told us they would be more likely to visit their library if some changes were made.

Because libraries are calm and welcoming spaces, they can be a safe environment for people with autism. But, for autistic guests, there can be uncertainty about making noise and what to do.

We’re working with the Association of Children’s and Education Librarians and Libraries Connected to make local libraries thriving environments where everyone is welcome.

There’s no obligation for libraries to participate, but we hope most will choose to do so and you can help us let them know the autism friendly training is free to use.
