Play Sessions at Brentford Toy Library
At Brentford Toy Library we are passionate about play! We are passionate about allowing children to be free to play and choose their own activities in a safe and spacious environment.
Our sessions are friendly, informal and relaxed. The main floor space is set out into different play areas; construction toys, role play, imaginative play and an area for quiet play. We have an area for arts & crafts at each session and an outdoor space for larger play items such as the slide and ride on toys.
We also have a separate space for under 1’s which is cordoned off for safety and has specific toys for this age range.
We aim to ensure all our toys are of high quality and in good condition.
We sell a selection of healthy snacks for children at our play session and hot drinks for adults. All the profits made from the sale of these items go towards the running of the play sessions.
Our play sessions are run five times per week.

These workshops are provided entirely free of charge.
Outings, seasonal and community events
We often arrange free/low cost outings during the school holidays; we know how hard this time can be for parents/carers.
**In Summer 2010 we took 90 members to LEGOLAND!**

We hold seasonal events such as a children’s Christmas party.
Brentford Toy Library works in partnership with many local organisations. We regularly plan community events such as The Great Brentford Picnic and Brentford May Fayre.
