Fisher-Price Donates Toys to Rochester Public Library’s Toy Resource Center at the Lincoln Branch Library

Fisher-Price donated toys valued over $1,200 to the Toy Resource Center at the Lincoln Branch Library. The Toy Resource Center offers a wide variety of toys, equipment and programs to enrich the play experiences of children and their caregivers, primarily targeting children up to eight years of age. Items in the collection have been selected for quality and safety to support the cognitive, creative, and physical developmental needs of children. Toys for children with special needs are also available.

Fisher-Price’s generous donation includes a wide selection of items such as toy kitchens, tricycles, dolls and trucks. These toys join thousands of others available for loan with a valid Monroe County Library System library card. Children accompanied by a supervising adult are welcome to visit. The Toy Resource Center is open on Mondays and Wednesdays, 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 12 noon - 3 p.m. Located at 851 Joseph Avenue, Lincoln Branch Library has been the home of the Toy Resource Center since 2000. Funding for the Toy Resource Center comes from the City of Rochester and private donations. For more information, please call 428-8210 or visit the library’s website at www.libraryweb.org.
In other news, I hadn't seen the MCLS web re-design yet. The angels are rejoicing on high for 1 click access to the library catalog. =)
