The Lending Library

Did you know that the birth-to-three period is the fastest rate of brain development across the entire human life span? We at Valley Oak know the importance of early learning and offer unique resources to our community. The Lending Library includes assorted resource materials, toys, books, and small play equipment for children age 0 to 8 years old.
