  4. How can I donate toys to the library? We are accepting donations of excellent condition used toys, as well as newly purchased toys, which would be best purchased at one of several local toy stores in order to support our local economy. Toys can be donated during regular open hours and at any of our playtime events. For more info see our Calendar and check back regularly for additional upcoming toy donation locations and dates.

  5. What are the toy donation guidelines? At this time we will not be collecting toys based on television or movie characters, battery-operated toys, or stuffed animals. We are also not accepting books. We would love for our collection to include high-quality, environmentally-friendly, gender-neutral, educational, and/or non-media based toys, and especially toys that encourage open-ended, creative, and imaginative play. Toy library collections also include things like board games, musical instruments, and costumes, so please consider donating them as well. If you are unsure about whether your toys are suitable for the toy library collection please contact us, we are more than happy to answer any questions! Thank you! Please join our mailing list and follow our Facebook page to be notified of future toy donation days.
