Run by its members, the Ballarat Toy Library is a friendly place where families can borrow toys on a regular basis.
We loan a wide range of quality toys, equipment, puzzles and games, saving our members money, storage space and reducing our carbon footprint.
With a membership to the library, you can easily meet the ever-changing and growing needs of your children at each stage of development; you can discover what toys they most enjoy before buying them, and it is a great place to meet other families in your community.
Every family with young children in and around Ballarat is welcome to be a member of the Ballarat Toy Library.
Come in and play!
Following this year’s Annual General Meeting, your current committee members are:
President: Sally Tuck
Secretary: Zara Pritchard
Treasurer: Jill Spruce*
Rosters & duty phone: Diha Abu Bakar*
Grants coordinator: Renae O’Brien
IT & general committee member: Jess McCulloch
We would love more people to join us to assist with the following empty positions: Vice-President, Fundraising, General Committee Member. Committee members marked with a * have indicated they will not be able to continue on the committee next year, so we also are looking for volunteers to take on Treasurer and Roster Coordinator roles.
Committee meetings are continuing on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm at the toy library. Anyone who’d like to join the committee is always welcome. Our phone number and email address are to the right of your screen to contact us for more details on how you can get involved. We are a friendly bunch of busy parents who enjoy meeting over a cuppa each month to keep this great member-run organisation going strong, so we can continue to offer a great selection of exciting toys for the children of Ballarat to borrow.
The first Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm is also a good time for people who are busy during the day to pop in and borrow toys, join the library or ask questions.
We are now part of the Ryan’s IGA Community Rewards Program. Please drop tokens in our box at the Pleasant Park store (corner of Sturt Street and Pleasant Street), or allocate your points to us online at http://rewards.ryansiga.com.au.
