The Partnership offers a lending library of toys, books, and games. These items are available for check-out with a $15 annual membership fee. The library is located in the Partnership office at 800 N. William Street.
Families, child care centers, and individuals are eligible to check-out materials.
Hours of Operation
Membership entitles the individual to utilize the lending library and other available resources.
Fee: $15.00 per individual per year.
The Partnership will provide a receipt for any money received through the library.
Items and resources are available for a four-week loan period with no renewals by phone. Textbooks may be checked out for the semester and the accountable party must bring proof of class enrollment and pay a $10 rental fee per book. Members may bring materials back prior to the date and check out new items. If members want to renew an item, they must return the item to the library first. If the item is not on reserve for another patron, it may be renewed.
*** A maximum of 7 items may be checked out at one time ***
Items damaged may be subject to a damage fee not to exceed the cost of the item. Normal wear and tear by children will not be considered damage.
The accountable party is responsible for cleaning all items before they are returned. The solution for cleaning is 1/2 tsp. bleach to one gallon of water. Wayne Child Care Resource & Referral will clean stuffed toys. Borrowers returning unclean items to the library may use the library supplies to sanitize and clean material at time of drop off.
Late fees will be charged for items not returned by the due date. A late fee of $0.50 per day per item will be charged, not to exceed the cost of the item. The individual may purchase and return the exact item to the library or pay the replacement cost amount directly to the Partnership for Children of Wayne County. Failure to return materials or pay for them will result in denial of library privileges. Library members who carry late or replacement fees will not receive training certificates for the training’s they attend until all fees are paid. If payment is not made within six months, all Partnership privileges may be revoked. If an item is lost from a kit, the accountable party has 5 days to return the missing item before being billed for the replacement cost. Late fees may be waived in extreme cases. A $10.00 handling fee will be charged for returned checks in addition to any NSF fees charged (usually $25.00), plus the original amount of the check.
