Toy Library

The Marion Library Service has toy libraries located at two of its branches; Cove Civic Centre and Park Holme Library. There is a great range of toys to borrow including:

  • Imaginative play
  • Construction
  • Puzzles
  • Board games
  • Toddler toys

The toy libraries provide a wonderful array of toys, games, sporting equipment and other resources to children, parents, caregivers and groups including play groups and family day care providers.

Primarily the toys available are for children up to 12 years of age.

Due to the popularity of a number of toys available, we offer a Popular Toys selection list. These toys may be reserved by you (up to ten reservations) from the Marion Library Catalogue (enter 'popular toy' into the search term) or by calling or visiting either Hallett Cove or Park Holme Libraries to assist you in this process.
