<br />days. She explained that these toy loan libraries were in operation in var~ous
<br />cities throughout the country and had been quite successful. There were numerous
<br />children who did not have sufficient toys or probably none none at all and childre
<br />became tired o~ playing with the same toys all the time. The opportunity to get a
<br />new toy is beneficial to the children. She said she was inquiring about a suitable
