Commitment

The library is run by volunteers – as such as part of a Standard Membership, members must commit to the following compulsory activities.  Children are welcome to all events except our stock take due to the nature of the tasks.

  1. Volunteer Sessions – Each member must complete two volunteer sessions at the toy library during their annual membership. The tasks includes counting toys which have been returned, labeling toys and other simple tasks. The volunteer sessions can be completed on either a Monday or Saturday. Members are able to self nominate for these sessions using their on-line account.
  2. AGM – The Annual General Meeting is held every August/September.
  3. Stock Take – A full stock take of the library’s toys is completed every year. Each member must volunteer for a 2 hour shift.
  4. Fundraising –  All members must make a reasonable effort to support the fundraising activities of the toy library.

 

Borrowing Toys

  • All borrowing is for up to four weeks, though toys can be exchanged more frequently if desired. Members have an option of renewing their toys for an additional two weeks using their on-line account if the toy has not be reserved by another member.
  • It is the responsibility of the member to ensure that the number of pieces/condition of the toy is correct when it is taken from the library.
  • Batteries are not supplied with toys.

 

Returning Toys

  • Toys must be returned at least 15 minutes before the library closes to allow time for the toys to be counted.
  • All toys and boxes must be cleaned before they are returned to the library.
  • All boxes/ bags must be returned with the  relevant toy.
  • Please do not allow children to use the boxes as toys.
  • Batteries must be removed before returning the toy.
  • All electronic data (photos etc..) must be deleted from our electronic toys before they are returned.
  • If a toy is damaged members need to report the damage to the library.  A certain level of wear and tear is expected but if significant damage is attributed to a member then they may be asked to pay for the replacement or repair of the item.
  • There is a $2 fine for missing toy or puzzle pieces payable on the day the toy is returned which is fully refundable upon return of the missing piece.
