Our AGM is on the 22nd October at 10:45am at the library. So that parents can enjoy the AGM, there will be a supervised messy play event run in the playground.

All attendees will also go in the draw for one free standard membership worth $60.

Please sign up for the event here so that we know how many adults and children to cater for.

Remember that an enthusiastic committee is critical for the continual running of the toy library.

Limited Operations this Saturday

This Saturday, Interlaken kinder is joining in Banyule council’s open day for kindergartens. They will be hosting families from 9am – noon.
This means that we are unable to open to our normal, full capacity.
We will be open for business, but the toy selection will be limited to only the larger toys that are kept in our shed.
If your toys are due back at this week, they will be automatically renewed for a fortnight. And we will be back to normal on Saturday March 12th.
We apologise for the late notification and any inconvenience.

We have reopened for the year and will be open as usual on Monday nights and Tuesday mornings.  We will continue to open on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month with the first Saturday for the year being the 13th February.

Closed for the Summer Holidays.

The library is now closed for the Summer Holidays and will be reopening on the 1st February 2016.  We will be installing shelving and carrying out a stocktake over the break.

Banyule City Council Community Grant

We were fortunate, to receive a grant during the recent Community Development Grant cycle.  We will be using the funds to purchase some new shelving to eliminate as much manual handling of toys etc. as possible.  Thank you BCC!

To give us a wonderful big cheque.  Here’s one of our happy members Willem thinking about all the awesome new toys we will be buying.
