Toy Library Expansion & Introducing Tonies! 

The Willoughby-Eastlake Library is proud to announce that we will have expanded our Toy Library! All WE Libraries now have collections that include everything from puzzles and adapted toys to Snap Circuits and coding robots! 

We are also adding Tonies to the Toy Library! Tonies are an audio system designed for little listeners. Turn it on, pop a Tonie on top and let the adventure begin! Tonies bring your family a screen-free, imagination-building experience, and each one brings new stories or songs! Each location has 4 Toniebox bundles as well as Tonie character bundles. Toys and Tonies are available to checkout for 21 days and are non-renewable and non-holdable. They must be returned to the location they were checked out at and cannot go in the book drop.
