*2pm-3:30pm we invite infants and toddlers to join us*

Please note that these are suggested timeframes, but ALL are welcome to join from 2-5:30pm, including siblings. When registering, include the TOTAL number of individuals attending to help us prepare.

The Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library is a play space is designed to engage young children. They've carefully selected each item with the developmental needs of children from birth through kindergarten in mind. Some toys encourage children to imagine, play pretend, or create. Some encourage cognitive development through design and problem-solving. Some encourage physical development through big movement and active play. They especially focus on toys that allow for open-ended play and avoid electronic toys.

Infants and toddlers under age two will enjoy a special area just for them. This section of the space is surrounded by a gate to allow these youngest players to explore, safely separated from the more rambunctious older children. This section is designed for the tiniest babies, rollers, crawlers, and new walkers.

There is a parking lot available at the First United Methodist Church (this is the entrance to the Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library which is located in the basement of the church). If the parking lot is full, street parking is also available on Centre Ave. We can't wait to connect with you and your family!
