A Space to Play

Our play space is designed to engage young children. We carefully select each item with the developmental needs of children from birth through kindergarten in mind. Some toys encourage children to imagine, play pretend, or create. Some encourage cognitive development through design and problem-solving. Some encourage physical development through big movement and active play. We have a special area for infants and a space just for art. We especially focus on toys that allow for open-ended play and avoid electronic toys.

Our play space is open to both members and non-members. We have two types of play sessions:

1) Members-Only Play Sessions 

You MUST be an active PTLL volunteer or patron member who has completed a brief training to attend these sessions. Reservation is optional for members-only play sessions. Reserving a slot ahead of time will allow us to notify you of any last-minute changes to our schedule. If you choose not to reserve a slot ahead of time, please check our Facebook page and/or your inbox before you come just in case we are closed for any reasons. There will not be a volunteer present during these sessions. Learn more about our members-only play session guidelines.


2) Public Play-Sessions

These play sessions are open to all and no advance reservation is required. The visitor fee for non-members/lending-only members is $5/child or $10/family. These sessions will be staffed by volunteers. You can pay the guest fee for a drop-in session here. Cash payment can also be made at arrival for public play sessions.

Guest fees are waived for the following visitors:

(1) First-time visitors

(2) Infants below the age of one

(3) Single-use family-pass holders

(4) ACCESS card holders

Our public hours depend on volunteer availability and are subject to change. Follow us on social media for up-to-date information.

Visit Us

Infants and toddlers under age two will enjoy a special area just for them. This section of the space is surrounded by a gate to allow these youngest players to explore, safely separated from the more rambunctious older children. This section is designed for the tiniest babies, rollers, crawlers, and new walkers.

Our space also includes an eating area with kid-sized tables and chairs. Our kitchen has a sink, microwave, refrigerator, and Keurig for use by members and visitors. We stock coffee and a variety of kid-friendly snacks that can be purchased for a nominal fee.
