Toy Libraries

Welcome to the libratu website

libratu is a management system for Toy Libraries and comes in two parts.

  • libratu is a free desktop software and database system for Windows or Linux. It has all the functionality required to manage members, rosters, toys and the loaning process.
  • libratu Online is a website that allows staff and members to view and interact (eg renew loans) with your libratu database. The cost for using libratu Online varies depending on the size of your toy library. The current fee schedule is here.
libratu was developed initially for the Dunedin Parents Centre Toy Library during 2007 and now that it is stable and contains all the functionality required to run a toy library we are making it available for others to use.

We enjoy hearing from other toy libraries who are using libratu, so if you have any comments or suggestions for new functionality please contact us here.

We can now offer a data transformation service. For a small fee we will endeavour to transform data you have in an existing system ready to import into libratu. Please contact us at support@libratu.com with details of your existing data for a quote.

Due to the large volume of requests for help using libratu and additional features we have decided to implement an annual support fee. This optional fee will entitle a toy library to unlimited email support as well as giving their functionality requests a higher priority. Click here for more information.
