Berwick’s toy library

Berwick’s toy library will host a Super Duper Open Day. Join on the day to borrow from our collection of more than 600 toys, games and puzzles for kids. This free event will showcase our huge toy collection, and a display of toys, games and equipment that are relevant to each stage of a child’s development. Young kids (0-6 years) will be able to explore our entire collection of toys, puzzles, games, and costumes, and there will be free face painting, outdoor play, as well as a coffee station for caregivers. We hope the event will be an opportunity for local caregivers to connect, chat and share stories and ideas about young children and their communities.
