How it works

How it STARTED

 

The Black Earth Children's Museum Toy Library was created with the vision of reducing waste and creating more opportunities for play! Each new toy can stimulate a child's brain in important new ways, but soon you can end up with a mountain of toys to store and kids can loose interest with so many choices. What if toys could come and visit for a bit, and then be returned for a new a different toy? Toy Library!

The Toy Library is an experiment so the process may change throughout the year. 

The community came together and donated some beautiful items that are like new and are sure to delight your child. Several students from Wisconsin Heights High School volunteered their time to organize and catalog the donations.
