Good-quality toys help stimulate a child’s development and fire up the imagination – and they are fun! 


Joining Carnegie Toy Library gives your child access to more than 2,500 toys across a wide range of categories. You can change toys as often as you like, keeping your children stimulated and entertained while saving money and reducing clutter at home. Borrowing toys through a toy library is also a fantastic way to teach children about sustainability and sharing.

Children learn through play. The variety of toys available through a toy library helps kids develop fine motor skills and think creatively. When you join Carnegie Toy Library, you are also joining our community of families in and around Carnegie. We look forward to seeing you soon!

What is the duty bond?


Our open sessions can only run with the support of duty volunteers. Members are required to attend and assist at 2 open sessions a year. Once your duty is completed your $50 duty bond will be refunded.


Alternatively, if you are unable to do your duty you can pay $100 instead of $50 and we will waive your duty.

Why doing your duty is so awesome

  • You get to borrow a bonus toy

  • You are helping run our open sessions

  • You get first pick of the toys being returned

  • You get a better feel for what we have in the toy library

  • You can ask other parents what they liked about the toys they borrowed

Simply log into your account online to put your name down for an open session.
