Toys, toys and more toys at Hurstville City Library

3 May 2012

Local children are set to reap the benefits of an even bigger and better toy library at Hurstville City Library.

Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Steve McMahon said the expanded toy library, to be launched on 10 May 2012, is great news for local children and parents alike.

“We have added a range of toys to our collection including rattles for baby’s small hands, pull-a-long toys for toddlers, mazes for hand-eye coordination, puzzles for shape recognition and memory, and trikes and scooters for outside fun,” he said.

Mayor McMahon said toys were important to a child’s development.

“Every kid loves toys and no matter what their family’s financial situation is, they should be able to enjoy and learn from playing with toys,” he said.

“Not only are they fun, toys are very important in a child’s physical, mental and social development.

“They help with hand-eye coordination, creativity, imagination, social interaction and much more.”

Mayor McMahon said he hoped local kids enjoyed them and their parents took advantage of this great service.

“Not only will they give hard-working parents some respite, these toys will help entertain children for hours on end.”

Toys can be borrowed for three weeks, with each library card entitling its holder to borrow two toys at a time.
