Toy library membership is £15 a year, £7.50 for those in receipt of benefits. This allows members to hire from a range of toys, from scooters and trikes to kitchens and a work bench with tools.
Toys can be borrowed for between 20p and £2 per fortnight (some items such as scooters are loaned for four weeks at a time). Members can borrow up to four toys per child, up to a maximum of ten per member at any one time. Our membership terms and conditions can be found here.
Come along and join at one of our toy library sessions. You will need to bring some ID, such as a driving licence or utility bill. If you are in receipt of benefits, please bring some evidence of this.
Play Setting Membership
Childminders and play settings are welcome to join the toy library as individuals in order to borrow toys for the children they are working with. The individual who joins is responsible for looking after any items borrowed and they should not be lent to others to take home.
We are delighted that we are able to run a pilot outreach project in 2018. Working with local children’s centres and charities, we aim to enable around 20 families to use the toy library who otherwise would not be able to benefit from all it has to offer.
