Why are we reopening?

We want to continue to support our local community and provide a place where you can borrow toys, safety equipment and books, helping your child’s development and well-being.

When are we reopening?

We opened our stay-and-play sessions again in early September. We are currently open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of each month from 9:30am – 12:30pm, during term time. If you would be interested in volunteering within the Toy Library, please email Vicky at info@charltontoylibrary.org.uk.

What have we been doing whilst closed?

Although our main premises were closed during the national lockdowns, we have still been continuing our outreach work. Thanks to our incredible supporters and the following funders: City Bridge Trust, Greenwich Charitable Trust, Small Business Grant from the government, we have been able to provide shopping vouchers and toys for vulnerable families and continue to do so.
