Membership/New Members:

There are some great advantages to being a toy library member!

  • You get to try out different toys every fortnight
  • Save money on buying toys that children quickly grow out of
  • Try out toys before you buy
  • Expose children to a wide variety of toys
  • Extend your current toy collection
  • Save space on toy storage

We operate a rolling membership year, so no matter when you join you receive a full 12 months. As we are a voluntary organisation, we rely on your help & co-operation. All toy library members (except casual members) are required to assist with the operation of the toy library by undertaking around four shifts per year. These shifts are overseen by our Toy Librarian and are a pretty painless way to keep the Library functioning.

We also offer casual membership. It’s a great way to arrange access to a terrific selection of toys for a specific time period – an option if you are hosting family or friends with children or you’re just in the city for a short period. Casual members simply pay a $50 refundable bond and $5 per fornight for each toy they borrow. Casual members do not perform session duties. If you’re interested in a casual membership just give us a call (022 451 7886) or (351-7886) to discuss how we can help you.

What to bring when you join

You can print out and fill in this membership form and bring it into the library during a library session to join on the spot. We also have copies in the library so don’t worry if you forget to bring it with you. When signing up please bring your membership fee (cash or cheque or eftpos) and some identification and proof of your address, such your driver’s licence and power or phone bill with your name on it.

If you have any questions or want to talk to someone about becoming a member, please give us a call on 022 451 7886 or 351-7886 or e-mail us at waimairitoylibrary@gmail.com.

 

We do gift vouchers

A great idea for grandparents or other family members. The voucher can be put towards a pre-pay card or a membership subscription. Just call or come in to arrange for a voucher. (Please note – all non-casual members, including those who pay for membership by voucher must undertake session duties).

Our annual membership fee is $80 for the year but Community Services Card holders receive a discount and their annual membership fee is $60.We welcome new members throughout the year.
