In light of recent developments related to COVID-19, we have decided to close the Finger Lakes Toy Library until further notice.  All loans will be extended at least a week beyond the date we reopen and no late fees will apply.  Please do not try to return your toys during this time, as no one will be at the toy library.  We will send another update as soon as we know more.  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to our director, Emily Art. 

Take care of yourselves and your families and we hope to see you soon!
