The vital role members play
Our members play a critical role in keeping the library operating, so all members are expected to help at the toy library for three sessions every twelve months. Members volunteer for two hours each session, and the main task is to check returned toys for completeness and cleanliness. Our session co-ordinator will guide you through the process.
When you sign up you will be asked to pay a volunteer levy of $60 for the year. If you complete your three volunteer shifts within the year, your levy will rollover to the next year or if you choose to resign you will receive your $60 back. If you do not complete the three volunteer shifts you will be required to pay another $60 levy when renewing your membership. Some benefits of duty are:
You can meet other members of the toy library – we often see neighbours meeting for the first time!
It’s a great way to check out the full range of toys on offer.
At the end of the session, you are entitled to borrow an extra toy for four weeks.
We also have annual events such as stocktakes and Bunnings BBQs which allows us to purchase new toys, and where we are grateful for members who can assist on the day.
