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.

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.
