Our ‘Full’ membership allows you to borrow four toys a fortnight. If you buy a ‘Family Plus’ membership, then your toy allowance doubles.
A Casual membership is perfect if you’re looking to join short-term or as a trial. It’s $20 for two months plus a $50 deposit, which is refunded on final return of all toys borrowed. It allows you to borrow four toys a fortnight. If after the two months you’d like to continue as a member, we can easily update your account to an annual membership (using your deposit to pay your annual membership fee). If you’d like to know more or have any questions about becoming a casual member, please get in touch with us, we’d love to help you if we can.
First-time baby membership
Sign up for a full annual membership before your first baby is nine months of age and receive an additional six months free! Take a look at our toys in the Early Learning range which are specifically for babies and younger children up to the age of 18 months and you’ll be opening up a new world of fun for your little one. Our toys include baby gyms, walkers and musical response toys.
As the Toy Library is run by unpaid volunteers, we ask all members to sign up to the duty roster 4 times a year (which works out as once a term)*. Duty involves helping a committee member run a toy library session, with their guidance. Volunteering is a great way to meet other toy library members and to learn more about the toys we offer.
You’re welcome to bring your children with you when you’re volunteering, as long as you keep an eye on them. They’re free to play with the bigger toys out on display, but we prefer that they play with toys with small parts or lots of pieces at home, once you’ve officially borrowed them!
Please sign up for a date that suits you here. If you can’t make your rostered duty, please let us know asap by email or message us via our Facebook page.
We understand that not all members will be in a position to do duty. When you sign up, you can choose to opt out of the duty roster by paying a levy of $40.
*Grandparent members are exempt from duty (but if any would like to do duty, they are very welcome to!)
