Xavier Stephens, 8, of Copley, feels the textures of bubbles blown by Tricia Twarogowski, branch manager of the Northwest Branch Library, in a new sensory story time program at the branch on Saturday in Akron. The program, designed to engage children with autism disorders and differing abilities, offers educational, literacy and social opportunities to the children, their siblings and parents/caregivers.
