What is Matthew’s Lending Library?


Matthew’s Lending Library is a not for profit publicly supported children’s charity established in 1991 to provide adaptive therapy equipment and capability switch operated toys to children and young adults with special needs.


Matthew's Lending Library was established as a living tribute to the memory of Matthew James McCarthy. Matthew was born on September 29,1981. His brain was not fully developed and therefore he valiantly battled numerous disabilities with bravery, courage and grace. Matthew's innocence, strength and courage were an inspiration to all. His impact was felt by everyone who had contact with him, because he touched each person's heart with love. Through laughter, tears and smiles, Matthew made a difference in our world. Through Matthew's Lending Library, we hope to continue to make a difference in the lives of others.
