ALABASTER – The children of Alabaster will soon be enjoying fun and learning during a new program at the Albert L. Scott Library thanks to two community service donations from two state representatives.

State Rep. April Weaver (R-Brierfield) and State Rep. Matt Fridy (R-Montevallo) each presented a $1,000 check to library director Nan Abbott on Oct. 3.

The total $2,000 will fund a bi-monthly sensory story time for individuals with special needs and multiple disabilities – and their siblings.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer sensory story time to families,” Abbott said. “And we are very appreciative of these two donations to fund it.”

Sensory story time will be held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at 3:30 p.m. starting Oct. 10. The story teller will be Rhoda Trimble, who has worked with special needs children and their families for nearly a decade. Sensory story time, which will be 45 minutes long, will be held in the library’s meeting room.
