Toy lending program’s too much of a hit for library to quit

Published Tuesday March 14

OAKLAND — Giant dinosaur toys? Got that. Caterpillar magnetic mazes? Sure. Plastic tool sets? Yep.

How about toy fire trucks, dump trucks and recycling trucks, even? The Oakland Public Library has all those and more, available for check-out at a growing number of branches.

After the toy lending library debuted at 4 branches in a 2015-16 fiscal year pilot program, this year the library added 2 more and plans to do the same next fiscal year.

The 6 with toy libraries already in place are: the Main Branch, West Oakland, Chavez, Elmhurst and, as of this year, Melrose and Rockridge.
