A New Sensory Station for Basildon Library

Councillor Aldridge and Councillor Twitchen officially unveiled Essex's second public access sensory station in Basildon Library on 10th July.

The Inclusive Communication Essex (ICE) team have been in collaboration with staff at Basildon Library and Sensory Technology Ltd to develop a state of the art area. 

Following on from the success of the UK's first sensory station with a public building in Chelmsford Library, Basildon's area includes a solar projector, an LED interactive infinity tunnel, a line lite mirror, a resonance wall pad, an interactive UV tactile activity panel and an interactive sound panel.  In addition to this is the amazing interactive video floor system which uses motion tracking technology - a simple hand (or wheelchair) movement allows people to interact directly with the picture.

All of the features aim to engage the user in a fun and interactive way and can be enjoyed equally by children and adults.

The sensory station can be booked in advance for exclusive use by groups and will be used during baby and toddler story times.  There will also be allocated sessions throughout the day for general public use.
