Grey Lynn Toy Library

Welcome to the Grey Lynn Toy Library

CLOSED - Wednesday 8th August. Due to a last minute event in St Columba hall we will unfortunately be closed this Wednesday. Apologies for any inconvenience and sorry for the short notice. We will be open as usual every Wednesday and Saturday morning in August and September.

Grey Lynn Toy Library promotes the value of play by giving you easy and affordable access to over 1,000 high quality toys and games to support your child's development. You pay an annual membership fee which allows you to borrow 6 toys per visit.

Our library has toys for children from 4 months to 8 years for local Auckland families. There's parking on site, and visitors are always welcome.

Come along and find out more – we’re open Wednesday and Saturday mornings at St Columba Hall.

"My kids absolutely love the toy library, it's almost like Christmas comes every couple of weeks! It's saved us buying loads of toys that they quickly grow out of and meant we don't have to own any of those big plastic things. We're massive fans."

- Kellyann, Point Chevalier

"The toy library has been a great value for our family ... it is awesome for keeping the level of clutter in our house to a minimum. One of the most valuable things about the toy library is that it teaches my daughter about the value of the sharing economy at a young age. We canʻt recommend it enough!"

- Sarah, Grey Lynn
