15th International Toy Library Conference

In July 2019, TLASA was the proud co-host of the International Toy Library Conference in Johannesburg. In collaboration with ITLA and Cotlands, we hosted an informative, thought-provoking, exciting and enriching African toy library experience.

The conference was an opportunity to network, share learnings, dialogue and explore topics relevant to the world of toy libraries. Here are some highlights from the conference.
