Great news – from Wednesday November 11th, we can officially welcome you back inside the toy library!
Thank you for your support during our Click and Collect re-opening. Our contactless model had a great response and we loved seeing everyone back at the toy library to borrow new toys. In line with State Government easing of restrictions, we are no longer required to continue our Click and Collect service.
What has changed?
A maximum of 10 members will be allowed inside the building for borrowing and returns. Social distancing must be observed, so if we are at capacity inside the library please wait patiently outside on the social distancing markings for your turn to enter. Please complete your borrowing as quickly as you can if there are people outside waiting. If you’re unwell, please stay home and return in good health.
As previously indicated, our loan periods will soon be returning to normal – all overdue toys must be returned by November 30 or fines will apply. So please come and see us or get in touch.
We will reinstate our member duty roster to help keep the toy library running smoothly. Remember that doing duty is part of your membership – please log into your account and put your name down as soon as you are able to help out.
