North West Toy Library celebrates 5 years

The North West Toy Library is excited to have come a long way in the 5 years it has served the community in a sustainable way. Through sharing its collection of now 900+ educational and fun toys with children aged below 12 years old, it has been a popular service for families. As a registered non-for-profit charity, it is solely run by a small group of volunteers and funds itself through membership fees, hireage of party packs and community grants. It has an impressive selection of toys, both new and donated. Earlier last year, it moved from its 4 year residence in Westgate to the West Harbour Tennis Club on Picasso Drive.

“We would like to thank the generosity of the West Harbour Tennis Club for meeting us when we needed a new home. We are now in plans for how we can make this a more permanent and accessible location for our members.” said Sarah Andrews, long-time serving committee member and librarian. The toy library is open during school terms on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays 9am – 11am and every other Sunday from 2-4pm. You can view the range of toys on its website -  For more information or should you wish to join or volunteer please contact or search for the “North West Toy Library” on Facebook or Instagram.
