Merri-bek Toy Library

Welcome to Merri-bek Toy Library! 

We are a friendly, member-run community facility for kids aged 6 months to 6 years in the Merri-bek City Council area .

If you'd like to browse our catalogue click on the Toys button above. You can also click the Join Now button to fill out a membership form.

Our annual membership fee of $85 ($45 for concession card holders) lets you borrow three toys at at time for two weeks. Our $110 option ($55 for concession card holders) lets you borrow six toys at a time for two weeks.

What does 'member-run' mean?

It means all our members are involved in keeping our sessions running. We are independent organisation, funded by membership fees and grants. Our committee of management are all volunteers. We run four borrowing sessions a week and, alongside our site coordinators, need our members to staff each session, processing loans and returns and helping with the maintenance of the toy collection. A condition of membership is helping out at two borrowing sessions a year - that's how we keep our membership fees so affordable. We have a roster that you can sign up to online or at a session. Helping out at the sessions is fun, a great way to meet other local families AND you get a really good look at all our toys!

If you're keen to help outside of session times, check out our Volunteer opportunities. A little help makes a big impact to us being able to keep running. Most only require an hour or two a week, and if you're currently on parental leave they're a great way to keep your skills current!
