We reopen for the year this Saturday, the 1st of February. All toys borrowed over the summer break are due back by the 8th of February. No fines for summer loans will be issued during the first two weeks.

We have a big year ahead of us at the toy library with some exciting projects on the go, and some new committee members to help make them happen. Members voted at the AGM last year to change our name to Moreland Toy Library, which we expect will make promoting our great service to prospective members even easier. Along with the new name (which will be finalised soon) keep an eye out for an updated logo later in the year.

We are also hoping to create a new, better looking and more useful website, but could use the help of someone with some website design skills and a bit of time on their hands. If this sounds like you, please get in touch – toyshed@gmail.com.

Over the next few months we have some grant money to spend – on some signage around the Scout Hall to give us a more visible presence there, and some new shelving and other storage solutions inside to better organise and display our toys. Please let us know if you have contacts in either of these areas who could get us a good price.

Finally, in our member survey last year you told us you wanted the toy library to open for an additional session during the week, and we are currently pursuing this option. We will keep you posted on dates and times!

We look forward to seeing you on a Saturday morning soon. Don’t forget to pop your name on the roster if you haven’t done duty for a while – we are still in need of some volunteers to help with our stall at the Sydney Road Street Party on Saturday the 2nd of March.
