Welcome to the Toy Library @ The Chantry Centre

The Toy Library provides parents, grandparents, childminders and playgroups/toddlers groups with over 550 toys available to borrow on a two week basis.

The Toy Library is open at The Chantry Centre every Thursday morning, 10-11.30am during term time. You can register your membership online but you will need to bring proof of your address along to one of our sessions in order to complete your registration and begin to use the service. Once registered, you can use our online system to reserve toys, check due dates, etc.

Toy Library Membership
We have two available membership types:
  • Pay Per Year Membership
    Our Pay Per Year members pay a lump sum of £24 to join. There is a limit of 3 toys on loan at any given time. If a member would like to borrow a larger number of toys on a one-off basis, eg. for a birthday party, then please speak to our volunteers to arrange this at an additional cost.
  • Pay Per Toy Membership
    Our Pay Per Toy members do not pay an annual fee, however each time they borrow a toy they pay per toy, per week of the hire. These fees range from 50p-£2 and can be found in the description information in each toys' record. Pay Per Toy members can borrow up to 3 toys at any one time, however if they would like to borrow additional toys on an occasional basis, eg for a birthday party, then this can be arranged at the discretion of our volunteers.
  • Get Involved
    The Toy Library is made possible by our fabulous volunteers. If you would like to get involved in helping to run our sessions please speak to one of our volunteers at a Toy Library session or email us.

    Upcoming session dates:
    December 2017: 7th
