The Book a Toy Loan Service is a joint project run by NAPI, Newcastle City Libraries and Sure Start Children's Centres.

The scheme operates in  Gosforth, ,Fenham and Outer West libraries with outreach catalogues at  Kenton and Blakelaw.

Unfortunately , due to storage issues the scheme has been withdrawn from Walker and East End libraries. we are looking at alternative ways of delivering the service in the east and will let everyone know as soon as we find out.

All libraries have been stocked with brand new toys in December 2016. Why not pop along to have a look.

An adult requires an 18+ library ticket to access the toys and can borrow up to 4 toys for four weeks at a time free of charge.

A catalogue with photographs of the toys suitable for under 8's is available in each library.  Toys already out on loan can be reserved.

Here are some of the comments that we have had about our toy loan service:

"Our daughter loved this toy, she had lots of fun"

"This was enjoyed very much by my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter"

" Great to try toys out, it has saved me buying some toys that I thought my son would like but he wasn't interested in"

"We go to Gosforth Library every week and loan a toy and book, its part of our routine,my son loves using the catalogue photos to choose his toy"

Please contact City Library for more details on 0191 277 4100.
