What is a Toy Library?

Where there is access to a large range of quality toys
With the opportunity to interact with other families
Which provides a chance to use toys that match the stages of a child's
Waitati Toy Library is open to everyone. There are six-month ($15) and
12-month ($30) memberships available that allow you to borrow toys for
50c to $2 per toy. We are continually working to provide the most up
to date and high quality toys at our library. We took advantage of the
toy specials at the national conference last month and look forward to
sharing them with everyone.
The Toy Library is a member-run organisation with support from the
national body. Active participation in the organisation not only
sustains the service for the community but fosters a sense of
community among its members.
For those members interested in learning more about the Toy Library,
our next committee meeting is on Tuesday, 3 August at 3:30pm (at

Hall on Saturdays at 10:30 – 11:30am and the following Monday nights
