Library of Things
Thanks to a generous grant form the VT Humanities Council, in 2021 the Solomon Wright Public Library began offering a circulating collection of non-traditional items. These items are available for any SWPL patron with a library card in good standing to borrow free of charge.
Peckham Toy Library
The Peckham Toy Library was established in 2022 using funds donated in loving memory of Carolyn Peckham.
For this special collection we have selected toys that encourage creative and imaginative play and learning. You can open the bins and play here, or borrow toys to take home for a week at a time.
This collection is perfect for grandparents who have children visiting from out of town, parents who want to try before they buy, and kids who are just a little bored with the toys they already have at home and would enjoy something new to play with for a while.
Baby Doll Bundle
Two baby dolls and everything needed to take good care of them: a crib, bouncy seat, highchair, baby carrier, bottles, and pacifiers.
Pretend Restauraunt Bundle
Everything a kid needs to open a pretend restaurant and enjoy hours of imaginative play: pots and pans, dishes, toy food, and a cash register.
Sturdy, recycled plastic trucks can be used indoors or out and are perfect for any kids who loves all things on wheels. Bundle includes: one firetruck, one dump truck, one garbage truck, and one airplane.
ABC's and 123's Bundle
For the emerging learner ready to practice their ABC's and 123's, this bundle includes: two tracing letters and numbers board books, interactive letter and number flash cards, and alphabet puzzle cards.
Kids can explore their backyard and see how many bug species they can identify with this kit, which includes: two bug cages, nets, magnifying glasses, a bug identification book, and a set of design-your-own bug stamps.
Bundle includes an electric pottery wheel and tools that you can use to try your hand at making cups, vases, bowls, and so much more. Air dry clay is not included, but can be purchased from the library for $5 per pound.
Tea Time Bundle
Everything a kid will need to host a tea party with service for four: Tea pot, teacups, saucers, and a wooden pop-up toaster and food.
Endless possibilities and tons of building fun, this bundle includes classic blocks and oddly shaped Montessori-style balancing blocks.
Everything you'll need for keeping the kids busy for a day at the beach: beach balls, sand toys, kites, and a mesh tote bag for carrying it all.
This bundle has it all: wooden tracks, wooden train cars, and a 32 piece wooden town set with buildings and signs.
