Toy & Learning Library
Borrow, learn and explore!
For years now libraries have pushed themselves to engage with new technologies and provide programming that complements the school curriculum in preparing kids for the coming challenges of the future. YPRL has met this challenge through many successful programs, such as our Code Clubs, Maker Spaces, and regular workshops in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) disciplines. We also have a range of STEAM resources used in our programs. The next logical step for us to support learning in STEM literacies is to provide lending resources that can be taken home like any other item in our collection.
That's where our Toy Library & Learning Library comes in!
Please note: due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, our Toy and Learning libraries are closed until further notice.
The toy library collection is suitable for children up to four years old and offers a wonderful selection of educational and stimulating toys. Members can access the toy library after Storytime sessions at Lalor Library, and can borrow up to three toys at a time, for up to three weeks.
The learning library features a collection of STEM and robotics equipment suitable for children aged 3–14. It is made available to members after school or during the library’s specific STEM programs and events.
