Orchard Toys were delighted to help their local community by donating some games and jigsaws to Norfolk’s mobile library service. These will be on offer to children and families who use the mobile libraries and hopefully provide lots smiles and fun!
This fantastic service provides residents living in more isolated rural communities with no library building the opportunity to borrow books and access library services. Eight mobile libraries visit villages throughout Norfolk, making around 2,000 stops every month! Free to join, Norfolk’s mobile library service can be enjoyed by all ages, including people with mobility problems and wheelchair users.
Glenn Durrant, the Mobile Library Manager, commented: "Orchard Toys’ kind donation of jigsaw puzzles and games has enabled us to enhance our library provision to children in rural locations. As well as promoting literacy and learning through books, story CDs, story sacks and DVDs, the mobile library service can now provide children with the opportunity to learn while having fun with attractive and engaging puzzles and games.
All of the puzzles were borrowed free of charge by excited children and their families within the first week of being available on the mobile libraries. Thank you to all the staff at Orchard Toys."
As a company proud of its Norfolk roots, we are proud to help the local community in any way we can and bring a little more learning and fun into people’s lives!
