The Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library, a volunteer-run cooperative play space and toy library, promotes early childhood development through creative play and family enrichment.

The Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library (PTLL) was established in 1974 by a group of parents who saw the need for an organization that would lend out toys, educate the community as to the importance of play for the development of children, and provide a place for children and their parents/caregivers to play together. Since its inception, the PTLL has been an all-volunteer run co-operative with no paid staff handling its operation. Forty years later, the Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library is still going strong!

We value:
Imaginative and Creative Play
Cooperative Spirit
Diverse Membership

Our vision is for the Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library to be an evolving leader and model in creative play, a model that services as a resource for the entire community.

Target Audience(s)
Young children (birth through age 6) and their parents/caregivers.
