and 12 month ($30) memberships available that allow you to borrow toys
at a cost of 50c to $2 per toy. We are continually working to provide
the most up-to-date and high quality toys at our library. Our current
toy buyer has just purchased new toys that include a range of Fisher
Price TRIO construction sets as well as Tolo Safari and Farm sets.
Our toys cover the age ranges from birth to nine years. Come check out
the new toys and revisit some old favourites.
The Toy Library is a member-run organisation with support from the

sustains the service for the community but fosters a sense of
community among its members.
