Your membership lasts for twelve months from the date of joining. We require a bond of $40 that will be refunded upon termination of membership; provided that all duties are completed and no toys are outstanding.

Bond

All new members pay a one off bond on joining the toy library. This is refunded when the membership is ceased provided all toys have been returned and duty requirements for the previous twelve months have been fulfilled.

 

Duties

We require all members (except committee and short-term members) to perform four duties per membership year: one per term. Once your duties are completed, your borrowing rights increase to four toys instead of three for the rest of the year.

Performing a duty involves:

Arriving ten minutes before the library opens.

Helping the session coordinator set up the library.

Counting toys during the session.

Helping the coordinator pack up.

A blank duty roster is posted on the notice board at the Toy Library every two months. We also have an online rostering system: http:// doodle.com/poll/zpry4pngrgngpbku. 

Duty sessions are a great way to get to know some other families in the area! You get a good look at toys you may not have noticed before as you check them in. You also get first choice of any new toys released while you are doing duty.

 

Opting out of Duties

 

If you are unable to carry out duties you can opt out by paying a levy of $40. Unlike your bond, this is non-refundable.

 

Interested in Joining?

Pop in to any of our sessions and we can show you our range of toys and if you like what you see you can join on the spot and start borrowing straight away! We accept cash and cheques and bank transfers (we can provide you with our bank details), but not credit or EFTPOS.
