The Twerton Ultimate Radical Toy Lending Experience is open to any family in B&NES with children under 16 years of age. It is also open to groups which work with children e.g. nurseries, pre-schools and out of school clubs. We are also linked with the Bath Childminding Network who use the Library and the Hut twice a month to meet.

The Childminding Network meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month and people may choose to return toys and equipment on those days if it is easier.

The Toy Library has a Development Worker - Val Rowlands who monitors toy usage, maintains toys and equipment and where parents want suggestions for child development or other reasons, she is able to suggest items that may be suitable. The toy library has a large range of toys and equipment which is all catalogued and numbered with a system of borrowing like in a book library.
