News from: Reading Borough Council
Reading Library Service’s Toy Library, which was previously housed in Southcote, has now moved to Reading Central Library and is housed in a fun new castle themed enclosure.
The toy library offers a fantastic selection of toys and games, catering for all ages, from babies to teens. The carefully selected resources include many that are appropriate for children with special needs.
Good toys can be expensive to buy, children soon grow out of them and get bored. By borrowing them from a toy library instead, different toys can be enjoyed without the expense of buying new ones all the time.
Parents can choose from a wide selection of small, medium or large toys at a minimal cost. Toys on offer range from Duplo sets and push & ride walkers, musical instruments and story sacks, to popular indoor games like marble runs, puzzles and Lego.
It is also an ideal way to hire larger indoor and outdoor games for children’s parties – with giant dominos, inflatable ball pits, large hoopla and giant snakes & ladders available.
The toy library is available during Central Library’s opening hours, which can be viewed here: www.reading.gov.uk/centrallibrary
People no longer need to take out an annual membership fee to borrow toys – two toys can be taken out on an adult library card for up to three weeks, from 50p for small toys up to a maximum of £3 for the largest items.
