The purpose of a toy lending library is to lend toys free-of-charge to families in the community. Play Works Toy Lending Library was founded in 2009 by Dr. Lorie Rowles. The program was designed to meet the needs of the community for all children from birth to eight years of age so that children have the opportunity to engage in play for development.
Play is a child’s occupation, it is an important activity to promote growth and development and to learn how to problem solve and learn skills needed to become a healthy adult. Play teaches children about their bodies, how to play by the rules, to develop social skills, to develop strength and coordination, and to learn how to work as part of a team.
The Toy Lending Library also has Family Game Nights. Explore a variety of board games, puzzles and Big Yard Games (played inside) such as Big Jenga, Big Connect Four, Big Kurplunk, and Big Uno.
