Do you have Down syndrome related books, toys, equipment, therapy items, etc that you would like to pass on? Consider posting your items on the NEW DSACO “Lending” Library Group on Facebook, for other DSACO families to use! Let’s reduce/reuse/recycle within our own Ds community!

Request to join the Facebook group by clicking here or searching ‘DSACO “Lending” Library’ on Facebook and once confirmed, you will be able to post your items or items that you are in need of!

Feel free to post your own pictures and arrange exchange of items. Not comfortable giving out your home address for someone to pick up? No worries, drop your item(s) off at DSACO and they can be picked up there!

By “lending” library, our idea is for families to pass along items to other families when they are no longer needed. Once you are done, if the item can still be used, pass it along to another family.
