Our Toy Library is open February to December each year. You pay one subscription fee for the year ending December (the amount varies depending on the month you join and whether you wish to volunteer your time at the Toy Library).
Your subscription allows you:
You are welcome to come and browse through our range before joining. Our librarian is happy to help with questions and can process your membership immediately so that you can start borrowing toys.
Pay the amount listed in the month you join (which includes a one-off joining fee of $25):
Rostered membership: pay a reduced fee when you come in to do three ‘rostered duties’ per year at the library. This involves collecting toy returns, organising shelves, and helping pack away toys at the end of the session. Rostered duties are a fantastic way to see all the toys on offer and meet other people in your community.
Community Services Card (CSC) membership: pay a reduced fee where you hold a CSC and complete three rostered duties as per rostered membership above.

We also have a range of decorative cake tins (such as numbers, teddy bear, butterfly, train), available for hire at $5 for a 2-week period.
Party Hire is available for members only – please contact our librarian to book and pay.
Summer Toy Hire
While the library is closed over the summer we offer our large toys and ride-ons to members at a summer toy hire rate of between $5 and $15 per toy. This allows you to play with great toys all summer long, and is a small fundraiser for the Library to assist with operating costs and new toy purchases in the new year. Details of toys, booking and payment are released in November each year. The popular toys are often snapped up quickly so it pays to be in quick!
