The Halswell Toy Library Inc (HTL) is a non-profit community service run by a voluntary committee, providing good quality toys for hire (6 months - 5 years old).
We aim to involve families in a welcoming and inclusive environment.
Saturday Mornings: 9:30am - 11:30am
People usually join for all sorts of reasons but the most common is that there is a huge variety of fun toys for different ages that make both the kids and the parents smile. Its a great way to learn something new at a very little expense.
The toys range in prices from $0.50 to $3.00 which you get to enjoy for 2 weeks before it needs to be returned or extended for longer use.
When you come in for duty, you help out the librarian by taking in the returned toys, counting and checking them for damage and returning them to the shelves (a great way to find toys you didn't know where there!). If it's quiet then a bit of a tidy up can never go amiss but a good ol yarn is great too.
Feel free to bring your children along for the duty roll if you feel that they can be entertained for the duration of the roll.
Give us a call and we can see what can be done to fix or replace the item.
There is a fee for a week by week basis on overdue toys that can be paid upon returning of said toy.
The prices for membership either Duty or Non-Duty reduce to however many months are left in the financial year (31 March 20XX). You will not be charged for the months that you were not a member of the Halswell Toy Library. Contact us to find out more or see our Fee Structure pdf here
