The Knox and District Toy Library has played an integral service to the families of Knox for the past 40+ years.
The Knox Toy Library provides a variety of fun, educational and age-appropriate toys for loan, at an affordable rate, to promote children's learning and development through play. The Toy Library is also an informal meeting point for parents of varying cultural and socio-economic groups.
We cater for children from 6 months to 6 years old. A Toy Library membership gives children the opportunity to experience a wider range of toys than they wouldn’t normally have access to, and it allows children to make choices and to learn from their decision making.
A committee of volunteers who are members of the Toy Library runs Knox and District Toy Library Inc. The Committee of Management meets monthly and all decisions are made at these meetings which members are welcome to attend. The committee is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting, which is held in March.
The benefits of becoming a committee member include:
The management committee is not only responsible for the general operations of the Toy Library but also places high priority on raising funds through events and grant applications.
