NEW PROCESS! So, How Do I Get My Toys?

  • If browsing from home you should:

  1. Reserve toys online at toys.fingerlakestoylibrary.org

  2. Wait for an email notification that toys are ready for pick up.

  3. Pick up your toys within 7 days of notification. 

  4. Upon arrival please come to Suite D07 (the old Cornell Store between Regal Cinemas and Target). Your toys will be held at the circulation desk for quick checkout.

  • If browsing in the library:

  1. Remember to stay home if sick.

  2. Bring your mask; all staff, volunteers and patrons over the age of 2 are required to wear masks within our suite.
