Success By 6 organizes toy library

The toy lending library will be located at the Clearwater Library

Editor, The Times:

Success By 6 is happy to announce that we are in the early stages of creating a toy lending library that will be open to the public in early 2013. This project is made possible by our sponsoring partners – TNRD, Clearwater Library and Wells Gray Community Forest. The toy lending library will be located at the Clearwater Library. You will not need a library card to borrow the toys; however, this is encouraged so families can take advantage of the wonderful selection of children’s library books available to sign out with each toy bin.

At this time, we are asking for donations of gently used toys in good condition that fit into the following themes: science, winter sports, summer sports, wild animals, farm animals, house pets, kitchen and house play, fantasy and fairy tales, boats and planes, trains, trucks and cars, construction, and doll House.

Please drop off your toys at your child’s classroom teacher, daycare, playschool, Yellowhead Community Services, or Community Resource Centre from Dec. 2 to 14. We will also be purchasing new toys for each toy bin from a grant provided by Wells Gray Community Forest.

When the toy lending library is open to the public, the toys will be cleaned weekly by the local Challengers program participants and staff.

This is an exciting partnership project for families in our community and we thank you for your help.

Yours in community spirit,

Heather Adamson

Success By 6 coordinator – Clearwater and Area
