Thank you for your contribution to this community effort! Our new Curbside events wouldn't be possible without your help!

Volunteers will help with choosing out toys for families based on a google form the family submits. Use our software to check the toys out to the families. During our curbside Saturday event volunteers will bring out the families toys and place them on a table for the family to grab when the volunteer is back in the building. There will always be a lead volunteer at an event to help with any questions/issues that may arise. The last option would be volunteers could come in and help take pictures of the returned toys. You will never be with more than 4 other people and we are requesting masks be worn in the Toy Library. No mask, we can provide you with one.

About Minneapolis Toy Library


Richfield Lutheran Church, 8 W 60th St, Minneapolis, MN 55419, US

Mission Statement

The Minneapolis Toy Library seeks to reduce waste, promote development and build community in the Twin Cities area.


The Minneapolis Toy Library is a toy lending program for families with children ages birth to 5 years.

Like a book library, you can check-out up to five toys, take them home for 2-4 weeks and exchange them for new ones when you return!

Annual membership runs on a sliding scale $40-$100, depending on what works best for your family.

Become a member at one of our curbside lending events at our space in the basement of the Richfield Lutheran Church, 8 W 60th St. Mpls, 55419 or via email at mplstoylibrary@gmail.com

The toy library offers an opportunity for families to connect with one another while supporting their child(ren)’s development through play and reducing their impact on the environment.
