In the weekend, I participated at (local) toy library stock take. It’s very amazing how these moms put their time and effort to build and run this toy library. I arrived at 9. The desks were ready, including tools to clean up the toys. You mention it: hot water, towel, brush, toothbrush.
And also the spreadsheets. What to do with these toys. They were very detail. Which toys should go to maintenance corner, put it back to their rack, and also which toys need to have photo. They setup a small photo booth with two desk lights for the lighting.
I finished at 12. I borrowed 4 toys, and I can borrow it until the summer ends. While the moms (the committee) hasn’t finish yet. I think they were still busy finishing the stock take.
Once, I attended the committee meeting. And one of them said, “We all struggling (with family and work)”. Her response was triggered by one of the toy library member who frequently late returning the toy.
See, how amazing it is.
