who runs the toy library?

We are a non-profit organization run by a voluntary committee with support from our members and their families. We are always in need of new committee members. If you would like to join the committee please email rangioratoylibrary@gmail.com or pop along to our next meeting to see what we do! From each new committee member, we gain new ideas and a fresh look into what can be improved.  The library is run by the members and a volunteer committee, who looks after the day-to-day running of the library.
