If you would like to purchase a gift voucher please click here and enter your details, we will send you payment details and a printable voucher. Please note each gift voucher is for $45 which covers half of a 6 month membership or can be put towards casual toy hire or party hire fees. If you would like to gift a larger value you could purchase multiple gift cards or contact us.

Our current membership structure:

6 months' Membership 
$90.00 ($45.00 concession*) 
5 toys at a time for up to 2 weeks (with a further 2 weeks' renewal available).

Volunteer BONUS: If you complete 3 (three) roster duties within six months, you receive your second six months free, giving you a year's membership for just $90! That's easily over a hundred toys through your playroom door :-)

 

Melbourne Community Toy Library is a community organisation, we would not survive without volunteers, which is why we ask all members to complete roster duty (attending a borrowing session to check and count returned toys). This is a great chance to meet other local families and see what toys we have available. If you feel you cannot complete roster duty at the library, you could:
 - Send another adult in your place
 - Ask us about alternatives (do you have a particular skill like sewing, toy repair, graphic design or marketing?)
 - Volunteer at community events or fund-raising events such as our Bunnings BBQ
