Responsibilities of Library Use.

In order to preserve the materials and ensure that everyone gets a chance to use them:

  • Be sure the children are properly supervised when playing with the toys and that the children are playing with toys meant for their age/developmental level. We have found that damage often occurs when older children play with toys meant for young children and vice versa. Toys meant for older children can be unsafe for younger children. Be aware of the smaller toys meant for older children that can be a choking hazard for children under three.
  • Store all items indoors or covered from the rain, in a safe place.
  • Clean toys and equipment before returning them.
  • Check contents list to be sure all items are accounted for.
  • Remember to return the items on time. Some items may be renewed. If an item is overdue and not renewable, no more items can be borrowed until the overdue item is returned.
  • We expect materials to show signs of wear and tear with use, and we just ask that the borrower use reasonable care with the equipment.
