libraries, which is available to all members, containing pictures
and details of all the toys available from the libraries. Contact
one of our field-workers or phone the office if you wish to see
the folder or if you have any queries.
The toy library is an
ideal way to try out toys within your group, to see if the children
are interested in playing with the items. It is a way of trying
out new ideas and if you are working on a particular theme, then
items from the library can often tie in with your project. Children
always enjoy playing with different and varied toys.

All the toys
are distributed from: Shetland Pre-School Play Ltd.

can I borrow something for our group?
You must first
register with the library, which involves paying a registration
fee currently £20.00 for groups payable in September each
year. If you require a registration form, either download them from
the website or contact the office Tel: 01595 743900.
How many items can I take?
Four items can be taken
out of the libraries and all toys must be returned within 4 weeks
from the date taken out. An extension of the loan may be requested
if the toy is required for a longer period as long as no one else
has pre-booked the toy.
When returning borrowed
toys from the libraries, please ensure they are intact and in a
clean and tidy condition. If there are any broken pieces or bits
missing, please inform us to allow us to obtain replacements.
The smooth running of
the libraries depends on members returning toys/equipment on time,
allowing us to redistribute them to other groups.
