Toy Library with drop-in Stay and Play sessions!

About the Toy Library

The Toy Library runs as a lending service where members can borrow toys and play resources.
It also offers weekly stay and play sessions where families can meet and access family support, and their children can play together. The service supports families with pre-school age children but older children who are home schooled are also welcome at sessions, and we have resources for older children which can be borrowed as well. The Toy Library is open to all. See below for information about how to borrow our Play Sacks
