“We have moved! The Toy Library now has a fabulous new home on Tuesdays, at Vallis Community Room… as well as our lovely Wednesday home with at the Library”. (see below for details of times plus how to join as a member) ”
We took over the Toy Library in October 2017 and just love it! Not only does it allow families to borrow from a huge range of toys and games, it also offers weekly stay and play sessions where families can dedicate time to playing with their little ones in a safe and nurturing environment. Become a member for just £20 per family per year (£10 for families on benefits) and you can borrow our toys for FREE (there is a small charge for some very special toys). To join just complete the form below.
