Play is the work of young children. Through play, children exercise their minds and bodies while learning valuable skills.

To help adults and children play and learn together, the St. Louis Public Library offers a variety of entertaining and educational toys for check-out free of charge:



Floor Puzzles Science Toys Family Puppets
Foam Puzzles Dominoes Bead Mazes
Wooden Puzzles Lotto Road Rugs with Vehicles
Knobbed Puzzles Musical Instruments See-N-Say
Play Clocks Dressing Boards Games
Parachutes Blocks Infant Toys

Gross-Motor Toys
Teachers and day care providers may use an organizational library card to check out toys for children in their care. Borrowers accept responsibility for late, lost or damaged toys.

All toys are stored at Central Library. You may request a toy - just as you would a book - to be delivered to any St. Louis Public Library location . Toys are listed in the library's electronic catalog; you may find them by using the ADVANCED SEARCH function and typing TOY COLLECTION as a Keyword Search for a complete list of all toys available.


Read to your child!
Play with your child!
And have fun!
