Lottery West Supported


Manning Toy Library Inc is pleased to announce that our application for Lotterywest grant of $3,367 was approved on the 5th February 2015.

We sincerely thank Lotterywest for their support in providing us this grant to purchase new toys for the library.

Stronger Communities Programme.

On 2018 we were awarded a grant from the Stronger Communities Programme (SCP). This enabled us to purchase some IT and to transfer our paper based management system to SeTLS, a cloud based toy library management system. This enables the toy library to far more efficiently service our members.

The Stronger Communities Programme supports the Australian Government’s commitment to deliver social benefits across Australia by funding small capital projects in each of the 150 federal electorates.

Thanks so much to Mr. Steve Irons MP for supporting our application and to the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science for this grant.

The Values of Membership

Membership costs $70 for each year starting from the AGM in July.

Discounts are available at the AGM, for concession holders and for people that join later in the year. There is also an additional one-off $30 security deposit which is refunded when you leave the library.

We are pretty flexible about how many toys you are able to borrow each fortnight. As our storage space is limited we are happy to see as many toys as possible head out each week

As the Toy Library is a volunteer organisation, of whom members are all volunteers, members are asked to do four roster duties each year, helping with booking the toys in and out.


Members can select from a wide range of toys, games and puzzles catering for children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years.

To see all our of toys go to the live toy listing.

Toys include trikes, roller coasters, slides, tents, trucks, cars, doll houses, kitchenettes, fancy dress, wooden puzzles, educational games, Power Touch and Leap Frog electronic systems, and much much more.
