Items are available to hire for two weeks, at one item or one sensory box per family. Items are nly to be used indoors unless stated otherwise in the library list. Where needed, instructions on how to use the equipment will be sent via email. 

Delivery

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, staff will deliver to your front door, or, if you are in flats, will meet you on the ground floor at the entrance to the block of flats. Unfortunately they will not be able to bring the equipment into your home, nor help to set it up. Any setting up instructions will be provided.

Our staff will be available for a chat at a safe distance on the day of your delivery should you wish to.

Safety

All the equipment will be disinfected before being wrapped or secured in lidded boxes. It will then remained untouched for a minimum of three days in our storage prior to delivery. We will do our best to but cannot guarantee that the wrapping or the outside of the boxes are not infected so would advise you to dispose of the wrapping safely or clean the outside of the boxes and then wash hands thoroughly before use.

Feedback

We are currently piloting this library but hope, in time, to have a much more extensive list of items and a dedicated booking system. To make this happen, we ask our lending library families to give feedback on their experience. A form will be provided with the equipment to be returned with the items. Thank you in advance for taking time to help us in this way.

Preparing your items ready for pick-up

You will receive an email with an inventory list and photo’s of equipment. Please ensure all items are clean and boxed up (if in boxes) and have been checked off against this list prior to collection.
