The Library  is seeking donation of children's toys

Toys are important to children's development.  That's why the Upshur County Public Library is starting a Toy Library.  We're accepting donations of good used toys.  Make sure they're safe toys, please.  No small parts. 

Patrons will be able to check out toys with their library cards.
