The Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library is a 100% volunteer-run cooperative that offers an indoor play space and allows families to borrow toys for home use. While we value play at all stages of development, our focus is on early childhood, and we primarily serve families with children from birth to kindergarten.
We are immensely proud of our 45-year history of making play matter, and we hope you’ll join us for a visit and consider membership. The PTLL wouldn’t exist without our dedicated volunteer-members who generously give their time to keep our doors open!
We’re located on Centre Avenue in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, adjacent to the First United Methodist Church.
Your first visit is FREE, so come see what a lovely and unique place we really are!
Our hours may change seasonally, and we may occasionally be closed during “open” hours due to volunteer availability. If possible, we recommend calling before your visit.
