Starting from 2001, Playright has been operating and managing the Toy Library in the Hong Kong Central Library to serve the citizens of Hong Kong. Since May 2021, we have adopted a brand new concept of “Enjoy Reading, Value Playing”.
Reading and playing are essential to all children. Reading comes alive when it is nested in play, and children can play within and beyond the stories. Through integrating reading and playing in the Toy Library, children can have fun – and lots of it!
The Toy Library is managed by a group of professional playworkers. All playworkers put children’s play needs as the core of their work, from the selection of picture books to the creation of play ideas, from the setting of seasonal themes to the play facilitation in general sessions and workshops.
