The toy doesn’t need to be new, but it does need to be of a quality that you would be happy to give to a friend or family.

Note: Often we accept toys that have missing pieces, as we can use them for spare parts.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept bikes with training wheels, broken and soft toys.

If you have items to donate, please bring them to the library during opening hours and our coordinator will be able to assist or contact us to discuss.
