About the Toy Library
Children learn through play and we aim to support families and encourage positive family interaction and togetherness with quality time spent playing with children. The Lincoln Toy Library provides access to an extensive range of good quality toys.
There are two membership types for families:
We encourage families to sign up as contributing members as the Toy Library is a community organisation run by volunteers and we greatly depend on the help and contribution of our members. Helping out at the Toy Library on Saturdays is also a great way to become familiar with all the toys we have and meet other families in the community. Download the membership form and handbook, which includes the current terms and conditions.
Toys can be hired for up to 2 weeks at a time and can be renewed once. The fortnightly hire charge, depending on the type of toy, is from $0.50 (for puzzles) to $2.50 (for bigger/ outdoor toys). We also have a great selection of cake tins for hire ($3 plus $10 bond).
Every second Saturday: 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Every Wednesday: 2:00 - 3.30 pm
