Toy library given £750 grant for new barcode system
Rickmansworth toy library has installed a computerised barcode lending system after the county council donated £750.
The new “toy tracker software” will create a faster and more efficient lending service for the library, which is run by volunteers.
The library, a charity, has 150 members and holds fortnightly sessions at Mill End Community Centre, where members can bring their children to play for free.
They can then pay between 20p and £4 to borrow a toy until the next session.
The money came from a locality budget. A total of £10,000 is available to each of the 77 members of Hertfordshire County Council to spend on worthwhile community projects in their area.
