Member responsibilities

Duties
We currently have almost 200 member families who utilise our library on a regular basis.

As the library is run by volunteers, each family is required to complete four duties per year during the library opening hours.

This is how we are able to keep our membership subscriptions so low. Please don't worry; duties are not onerous but are fun and provide you with a great opportunity for meeting other members living in our community.

There is a duties roster in the Toy Library so you can pick and choose which days/evenings would suit you best.

The duties involve assisting the librarian with issues and returns, helping new members and processing any new toys.

As Saturday morning sessions are slightly longer, helping on a Saturday counts as two duties.

After completing a duty, your family can borrow an extra toy for two weeks.

Children in the library

Please supervise your children while in the toy library.

We have a playpen with toys that you are welcome to use at any time.

Executive Committe

Our Executive Committee is made up of up to 15 members at any one time.

There are duty and membership concessions available for Committee members. The concessions are:

  • Full membership for the price of a basic membership

  • Two free toys for our summer lending programme

  • Committee members are exempt from carrying out the four duties per year.

If you would like more information on becoming a member, please contact us we'd love to hear from you.
