Finger Lakes Toy Library, Inc., is a 501c3 nonprofit organization with the mission to improve quality of life: by increasing access to toys, supporting play, and encouraging a culture of reuse and sharing.
We operate a toy lending library based in Ithaca, NY that shares high-quality toys to members from all parts of our community. Play is essential to child development, and we provide children with the tools of that play. We focus on open-ended, creative playthings that encourage imaginative, skill-building play. A toy library has a myriad of benefits to a community, and our first members are raving about the service the toy library has provided them. In just 5 months we now have 71 member families, with 111 children, and we are growing every day!
In addition to lending toys out of our Ithaca location, we are also engaging community members in play experiences in several other area locations. We hold a free monthly Playtime at Southside Community Center, and bring our Playtimes and STEM Playtimes to many area libraries and community events and festivals.
