In August 2018, Toy Libraries Malaysia partnered with Epic Communities to build a toy library at Idaman Apartment! Since then, we've seen the community fully utilising the space and they've gone the extra mile to run programs for the community, create a safe space for kids to play and also self-initiated projects like the rain water harvesting system and garden in the outdoors of the library.
This June 2019, we are going to build an extension for the toy library, providing more space for books and toys and semi-outdoor shade for children to play in!
The Toy library is to provide a platform for early childhood education and the organisation believes it is very crucial and key to the learning and communication development of the child and to help them thrive in their entire formal educational life. The Toy Library will serve many families and their children in Idaman Apartment who are mostly lower income families where it gives the children a good platform in early childhood education.
In partnership with Hong Leong Foundation, Epic Communities & the JMB of Idaman Apartment residents association in Damansara Damai, we need the help of volunteers to come together to build this together!
What is a toy library?
A toy library! It is generally like a books library but with toys. Kids are allowed to borrow them to play around the vicinity or back home for a certain period of time. A librarian will be assigned to this library to keep record of toys. A play and learning space is to be provided for the children and parents, especially mothers to use as part of the toy library spatial requirements
What will you be doing?
You will be getting your hands dirty putting together the structure, walls, floor and roofing for the toy library! This includes assembling together a structure with timber, steel, and fiber cement boards and getting a chance to work with power tools on a mini construction site!
