The Resource Centres provide a lending library service to any community member who has a membership. You do not have to be a KidsAbility family to take advantage of this service. Appropriate toys, resource materials and therapeutic equipment are available and can be borrowed to enrich children’s lives through play, to expand knowledge of special needs, and to support home therapy goals. Please note: borrowing equipment must come at the referral of a therapist.
