For a £5 annual fee, you can borrow toys suitable for children up to the age of 12. Toys are 50p to £3 for a three-week loan.
You can join at any Reading library.
The Toy Library is based at Southcote Library but you can request toys from the catalogue and collect them from your local library a few days later (large items have to be collected from the Toy Library in Southcote).
All toys are checked and cleaned before loan.
