What Else Do I Need to Know?
‘Basic’ and ‘Standard’ members are required to volunteer their time for 8 hours per year (4 x 2-hour blocks per year) to aid in running the toy library. Maroondah Toy Library is volunteer run and without your help we couldn't offer such a great service for such a reasonable price. Doing volunteer duty is also great fun and as a bonus you get to borrow from our fantastic Duty Toy section of super popular toys, including toys worth over $400.
We understand not everyone can volunteer, so our ‘Premium’ membership is designed for these people. The additional fees help us cover our running costs, as we receive no ongoing funding. Premium members can still borrow our Duty Toy section four times a year.
Our standard borrowing period is three weeks but you are welcome to return your toys and borrow new ones as often as you like. You can also renew your toys for a further three weeks via the online membership portal with the exception of Duty Toys, and toys that have a paid Hold placed by another member.
If you've been a member in the past and would like to join, simply drop into a session and we will reactivate your membership - no need to fill in another new membership form online.
