We welcomed Jennifer to our Committee in April 2019

How long have you been a Toy Library member?

Our family have been members for two years now. We first joined when we moved from interstate to join the inner west community. We would visit the library every couple of weeks to borrow new toys for our daughter. It was really fun watching her pick out her favourite toys for the week. We look forward to being active borrowers again when we welcome our new boy into the family!

What does your Co-Treasurer role involve?

Preparing the monthly financial reports and budgets and keeping track of the finances to make sure that the library continues to operate effectively.

Do you have a favourite type of toy?

Puzzles and anything that encourages creativity.

What is your favourite thing about living in the inner west?

It’s such a close knit community with a real village feel. We decided to make this place our home after having moved around a lot and now we wouldn't live anywhere else!

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.

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!

We found there are so many great toys for babies and if you are a new member you can take advantage of the babies special which gives you an additional 6 months for free when you join before your baby is 6 months old.
