About Us:

Welcome to Charnwood's only static Toy Library! After 34 years of service, we pride ourselves with being one of the most successful Toy Libraries in the county. Although small and friendly, our aim is to reach out to those in need.

Members use our services throughout Charnwood, with many families/carers on low incomes. The Toy Library supports child development through play by offering a range of quality toys to all children including those with disabilities for recreation, therapy and education to advance their intellectual, motor, personal and social development. Here they have access to quality toys with the flexibility to change them on a three weekly basis.  We open three mornings per week during term time and loan out indoor and outdoor toys, DVD's, games, jigsaws, dressing up clothes and story sacks. Most of our toys are recycled quality donations.

Staff and volunteers also run guided play sessions in our playroom that is led by a qualified play leader. Monies gratefully received will go towards essential toys and craft materials, as well general running and maintenance costs. Our goal is to work towards funding for a new building.

With your help we can grow and continue our sustainability. You can read more about what we do on Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you so much for your support by joining us today, and we wish you all lots of luck!
