Join our SKETCH Toy Library

A00461 Toy Library Poster A4 v1.jpg
Our SKETCH toy library in East Dunbartonshire offers parents and groups the chance to borrow toys free. Membership is open to:
  • Any parent or family living in East Dunbartonshire;
  • Any voluntary child care group;
  • Registered child minders;
  • Temporary foster carers;
  • Any family or group with children with special needs or a disability;
  • Any family referred by a recognised agency such as health visitor or social worker;
  • Family support groups;
  • Crèches, play groups, Nurseries, Schools; and
  • After School Clubs.

Resources available include toys, books, games and topic/discovery boxes for children from birth to 11 years. The Toy Library also holds a selection of sensory toys which are suitable for children with additional support needs but engage many children’s interests.

Everything is free – all we ask is people take care of anything they borrow.

We open once a week (during term time) at three main bases in East Dunbartonshire, and we also visit special schools, early years centres, out of school care services, childminding groups, and post-natal baby clinics.

For more details about the library, or to join, please contact the Toy Library Coordinator by emailing or calling 07889 456 576
