Autism Resource Center

The Autism Resource Center at Lancaster Public Library provides hundreds of print, audio, and video materials on the subject of Autism for use in the library and at home.

Opened in November 2010, the Autism Resource Center provides a welcoming and comfortable environment for individuals with autism, and for those whose lives are touched by autism,  including families, teachers, and therapeutic support specialists.

In addition to the extensive collection of materials on the topic of autism, the Autism Resource Center offers a dedicated space that accommodates and supports the sensory, communication, and social/emotional needs of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The Autism Resource Collection includes over 800 books, DVDs, games, etc. in the areas of teaching social skills, behavioral therapy, conflict resolution, and community awareness and interaction.
Our specialized collection includes: games & puzzles; fidget toys; stress balls; weighted tactile beanbags; inflatable pea pods; fidget toys; sensory press and stay blocks; and a curved sensory balance beam!
