Bill Goodwin Toy Lending Library

Please note that the Toy Lending Library is closed until further notice.

Our Toy Lending Library service is back! Families can borrow a variety of age appropriate toys for babies and children up to six years old.  You can find our Toy Lending Library catalogue here.  Families can call and reserve up to two toys for a two week period.  We ask that families wipe down the toys before bringing them back to the centre.  All of the toys are cleaned and disinfected upon return to CCHC. We ask that each family bring their own reusable bag when picking up and returning toys.
To reserve a toy, call 613- 233-4443 ex. 3134.  Please leave a message with the name of the toy and a staff member will call you back to follow-up with your request.
