Founded in 2002 and run by a volunteer committee of local parents and dedicated Librarians, the Ellerslie Toy Library provides a large selection of toys for children from infants to 5 years.
We're hiring! Talk to us today about becoming our dedicated Superstar Librarian. A part time paid role, no more than 8 hours a week, the librarian is responsible for inducting new members, opening and closing the library, issuing toys, managing our duty and volunteer roster and more. If you love organisation, working with people and can commit to working on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, we'd love to hear from you!
We have two annual membership options;
Duty Membership is $110 and requires you to complete four rostered duties (1-2 hours) over the year.
If you'd prefer not to commit to rostered duties the Non-Duty Membership fee is $190.
We also offer a 4-week trial membership for $20 with a refundable $50 bond. If you decide to join the library immediately after your trial membership finished, your trial fee and bond can be discounted from your annual membership. Please note that trial members are unable to use the reservation system, this is only for our full members.
We do not charge per toy but you will be responsible for lost pieces and fines are incurred for overdue toys.
Each family may borrow a maximum of Five toys at a time. You may borrow the toys for two weeks.
Join the Toy Library today by selecting the 'Join Now' button and completing the online form. Alternatively you can come into the library during one of our sessions. Membership payment can be done either by direct debit or eftpos (credit cards not accepted).
