Toy Libraries: Providing Abundant Play Opportunities

I was in my Foundations library class when I first heard about toy libraries. Entering library school I had no idea that there were toy libraries in existence, what exactly they were or what they did. Recently I had the chance to talk to a member of the Toy Library Association about just that. A toy library’s objectives depends on the community it serves, though the most obvious is to provide toys to children. How that process is gone about the and the method of communication is how one toy library may differ from another.
