UPDATED 5/31/21 Summer open hours plans

Change to summer in person borrowing plans!

In light of the recent restrictions lifted in Minnesota, the toy library will NOT be using reservations for families to come in to the library to borrow toys. Minneapolis still mandates that people wear masks inside, so that will stay in effect.  We will have a capacity limit of 10 family members inside the library at a time. If the capacity is reached when you arrive you will have to wait outside our doors until there’s space.  Please be courteous of others and keep your visits brief.  We encourage you to bring the toys home to try them out.  This saves on time and keeps toys cleaner.  

We apologize for all the back and forth.  I’m sure you are all experiencing this in your daily life as well and with other businesses.  We don’t want to confuse people and hope our communication ahead of our Monday, June 7th opening will help all know our current plans.  

Our hours for the summer:

Every 2nd and 4th week of the month

Monday 9 – 12

Wednesday 6 – 9

Saturday 9 – 12


A couple notes:

*We are still accepting toy donations.  You can bring those in and down the steps, there will be a bin for toy donations.  No need to come in the library for that.  Same goes for our recycling containers.

*You can renew in person or contact us through email.  We accept Venmo (@mplstoylibrary), cash, check or credit card at the library.

*Remember to use our toy cleaning protocol on our website to clean your toys before they come in.  Remember the plastic bags they came in as well.  

Can’t wait to see you!!!  Let us know if you have any questions, we are happy to help.
