How do I become a member?

  1. Find an open time on our hours page. We are open year round!
  2. At the toy library you can fill out the membership form and pay your membership fee.

Yearly membership options:

*sliding scale membership from $40 – $100.  We encourage members to pay the fee that feels most comfortable for their family.

$40 – Sustains operations

$50 – Purchase new toys

$60 – Pay for marketing materials

$70 – Community play opportunities

$80 – Offer scholarships

$90 – Space expansion

$100 – Foundational membership

*volunteer membership for $20.  Pay this membership fee and then sign up to volunteer at 4 lending events during the year.  Volunteering is simple, a great way to support us, and a great way to get first dibs on cool toys that come back!

Membership fee can be paid by cash, check, or credit.

As of July 5th, 2020, we can accept the following methods for payment for new or renewed memberships:

Venmo (@mplstoylibrary)

Check (can bring to curbside toy pick up)

Cash (can bring to curbside toy pick up)

Credit Card over the phone (without the card present there’s a higher fee, so this is our least desirable method of payment)

3. Browse our inventory to select up to five toys to bring home the day you join!  Toys are due 4 weeks later, however come as often as you wish.

If the membership fee is hindering you from becoming a member, you can apply for a scholarship, which can help reduce the membership fee for your family.  The application can be filled out at the library or here.

What members are saying…

We absolutely LOVE the toy library. Membership is worth every penny. – Kate Simpson The toy library helps our family save money, reduce materialism and waste, build community, and accommodate the changing interests and needs of our children. We give gift certificates as gifts to all the parents we know. – Kathryn Spotts

The toy library is amazing!! I strongly recommend checking it out! My girls love getting the new goodies each time and it makes my heart happy to know that we don’t have the keep the toys around our house forever! I hate clutter and owning too much stuff so this is perfect for our lifestyle. Thanks to the lovely ladies who started and run this great operation! – Erin Ley

This is a great option for gently used toy donations. My kids can still play with the items when we check them out, but I don’t have to store them! – Tess Young
