Everyone is welcome to become a member of the Moonee Valley Toy Library. Join online or come in to either our Avondale Heights or Essendon branches. The kids will love the variety of toys available. Our memberships are for 12 months from the date of joining. Members can chose either a 4 or 8 toy membership, borrowing for 3 weeks. Get more involved The Toy Library is managed by a voluntary committee, elected annually. We welcome new committee members and have a number of short and long term projects and positions available. You don’t need any experience to be a valuable committee member, just a willingness to participate and take an interest in the future of the Moonee Valley Toy Library. 

Memberships with roster duty

The toy library can only run with the support of member volunteers and we value the contribution they make. To keep our membership cost low, members are required to volunteer in the toy library for a minimum 6 hours or contribute in other ways (e.g. participating in stock-take or being a member of the committee). You can nominate which days suit you. The first volunteer session needs to be allocated when you join the toy library. Members are welcome to bring their children to the toy library during roster duty sessions.
