The Toy Library is based at Harrogate High School (previously known as Granby) and has a huge variety of toys available to borrow. As well as the lending services the Toy Library also runs stay and play sessions that are open to all children under five and their parents/carers. 

Toy lending is available during the play sessions which are held on Monday and Friday mornings.

Play is important

Babies and children learn from their experiences. Play and learning are indistingishable and opportunities present themselves in everyday life without you being conscious that you are teaching your child. Through the Toy Library you can borrow different toys each week to play with your children, they (and you) will never get bored.

We have a massive range of toys for all age groups and a large selection of games and puzzles. New toys are brought on a regular basis.

Special needs toys and specialist equipment is also available to hire.

New toys are expensive and are often left unplayed with, with the Toy Library your child can have a constant supply of 'new' toys and when they have lost interest you just bring them back and swap them for another one!   

The Toy Library is a member of the National Association of Toy and Lending Libraries. for more information on NATLL. click here

Stay & Play Outdoors

Are you looking for something new to do with your children this summer? why not give something different a try. Harrogate and Knaresborough Toy Library in partnership with Harrogate College are offering a unique play experience, held at the Outdoor Learning Area, in the college grounds. We will be running a series of play sessions which tap into every child's love of the outdoors. In this safe natural environment children can explore the elements!
