Interactive ‘magic’ projectors have over 100 games and activities which have been designed by professionals to support children and adults who may be living with autism or learning difficulties. Available at Taunton; Bridgwater; Yeovil; Chard and Frome Libraries, anyone can book a free session (depending on availability). Games, images, and activities can be projected onto a table or the floor to create an interactive activity which can stimulate emotion, memory, learning and of course they are great fun!

Contact the library in advance to book a session and to check staff availability, our staff will be able to show you the activities, but a carer or parent/guardian will need to stay with the child during the session. As well as the projectors, each library has a children’s area, regular events and a range of books which can support children and carers – to find/contact your local library visit: Our libraries (
