How long have you been a Toy Library member?

We have been members of the Laverton branch since our son was 12 months old. We heard about the toy library from a friend who was already a member. We loved the idea of being able to experience new and different toys every fortnight without worrying about the storage or expense of buying new and quality toys. Our son enjoys every visit we make to the library, he enjoys being surrounded by hundreds of toys and being able to choose whatever he likes. 
 

What does your Operations role involve?

My role involves IT and database management, stocktake and members' support.
 

Do you have a favourite type of toy?

My son enjoys train toys, especially Thomas the Tank Engine. He also loves ride-on toys. 
 

Any tips for new members?

Encourage your children to borrow toys from different categories. There are heaps of different toys to discover and enjoy. 


Welcome to our new website!

We are delighted to share with you our new website and logo! Our new website is all thanks to a 2017 Quick Response Grant from Hobsons Bay City Council. This grant has allowed us to redesign the HBTL website, integrating both our Newport and Laverton Branches into one website and adding new features including online membership sign ups and members' area, allowing members to renew toys and sign up for roster duty online. We are very grateful to our fabulous Committee members who have been working hard to bring our new website to you. We are also excited to launch our brand new logo! We want to thank Sunshiny Design for their fabulous in-kind work on our new logo. We hope you like it just as much as we do! Our website was created and designed by Melbourne agency The Monk by the Sea who we wish to thank for their support and expertise. We trust our new website will improve your experience at the Toy Library!

How long have you been a Toy Library member?

Our family have been members for around a year. We thought it would be about time to join a toy library when our son was looking for new and interesting toys to play with. My son absolutely loves all the new toys every few weeks. Every time we go into the toy library he runs out the back to pick out a new ride-on toy!
 

What does your Co-Treasurer role involve?

My role involves managing the monthly pays for employees, invoice processing, government remittances and annual tax returns.
 

Do you have a favourite type of toy?

At the moment, my son can't get enough of any of the ride-on toys!
 

Any tips for new members?

Spend time looking through the toys in bags, there are different toys there every week!
