About Us

Since 1974, the Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library has been making play matter thanks to everyone who has served on our board of directors, shared their skills, volunteered in our space, joined us as a member, visited our play space, and/or supported us from within the community.

 

The PTLL exists for all of us, belongs to all of us, and thrives because of all of us. If you've visited us before, you know that the toy library is a unique celebration of early childhood. If you haven't visited us before, we hope to meet you soon!
