At CPL, the health and safety of our clients and employees is our number one priority. We have been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation to implement preventative measures, in line with government requirements, to prevent the spread of the virus.
We have made the decision to temporarily close our Resource and Toy Library, including online orders, from Monday 30 March.
We understand this decision will impact families, especially those with children at home from school. We will be in touch when the library reopens and is available to take online bookings.
Please note our database system is automated, so you may still receive overdue reminders. If you do receive one, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to extend your rental period.

Take care and stay safe.

Inclusion Works! and Noah's Ark
For over 40 years, Noah's Ark provided educational resources and advice to families, educators and allied health professionals. In 2014 Noah's Ark was rebranded as Inclusion Works! to reflect the broadening of its services.
Then, as now, the focus of the library remains on providing services that enable educators to enhance the learning environments of ALL children.
