Bayside Toy Library memberships are valid for a year. Borrowing period is three weeks.
Concession card holders get a 50% discount in their memberships, but require volunteer hours. Concession card holders can choose to not volunteer but need to pay duty levy.
You can borrow a number of toys and a puzzle for 3 weeks, depending on the type of membership you’ve selected.
If you are unsure about what toys to borrow, you can check our category and age group guides, or ask our friendly librarian for recommendations. They are usually on the ball!
Children above 18 months are encouraged to borrow a puzzle or a game as well as the number of toys according to the membership chosen.
Before leaving the Toy Library, you should check that the toy is complete and undamaged. When you get home make sure you count the pieces and that it’s all there. Should there be a problem, please email us!
The library charges a small fine for overdue items and missing pieces. But we know life throws spanners at us parents and carers sometimes, so if you email us and let us know you won’t be able to return your toys on time, we will make arrangements and not charge any fees.
