What Else Do I Need to Know?
Borrowing period is 21 days - return your toys to any session within this time. You can also renew your toys for a further 3 weeks via the online login that will be sent to you after joining.
General members are expected to volunteer their time for 2 hours per term (4 times 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 duty is also great fun and as a bonus you get to borrow from our fantastic Duty Toy section of super popular, super cool toys!
If you'd prefer, you can simply pay an additional $100 to opt out of your 4 rostered duties for the year. Either option is fine with us!
We also offer part year memberships with the fee being calculated pro rata. Eg, if you'd like to join for 4 months, we'd simply charge you 1/3 of the annual fee.
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.
To purchase a 12 month 4 toys per visit membership as a gift, please fill in the application form below and then pay the $80 charge via PayPal or credit card. Once your application is approved a gift card with a 12 month expiry will be emailed to you.
