A Sensory Wonderland
A programming space for the special needs community

Motor coordination, concentration, color recognition, understanding cause and effect—these are some of the skills Louisville Public Library hopes to amplify in the children and adults with special needs who use its new Sensory Space. It’s not a large room; it can hold only 24 individuals at a time, and it is often at capacity. But it is a unique space for sensory exploration and programming. “It’s the only library in the state of Ohio offering something like this,” Library Director Jason Buydos says. “It is potentially an example of what libraries could or should be offering nationally.”

One of the benefits of getting into a new genre is being able to curate a diverse and inclusive TBR right from the beginning. When I jumped into horror a few months ago and started compiling a list of titles, I tried to be sure that my list included as many female authors, LGBTQ+ authors, and authors of color as possible. It’s an ongoing project, and I’m constantly swapping out titles on my buy list to ensure that I’m not giving preference to white male authors, who still make up a large part of the genre. And of course I still want to read some of horror’s “classics” regardless of who wrote them, but prioritizing marginalized authors has led me to some fantastic sounding horror books by authors of color.
