Any family living within the Tauranga/Papamoa area – Proof of residence is required to join.
Toys are loaned out at varying prices (between 50 cents and $5) per fortnight depending on the replacement value of the toy. All memberships incur the same rental fees.
Care of toys you borrow is your responsibility. Please return them dry, clean, and tidy, in the condition you would like to receive them.
Please check your toys at the time of issue. If you do not, the toy is deemed to be complete at the time of issue and you will be charged for any broken or missing pieces on the toy's return.
Please do not exchange toy library toys with friends, even if they are toy library members. All toy library toys borrowed by you must remain in your home.
If you decide to discontinue your use of the toy library for any reason, we would appreciate you notifying us as sometimes we have waiting lists. There will be no refunds of any subs paid. Please keep us informed of any change in your address, email, or phone number.
You are required to work a full session at least four times per year by completing 1 duty every 3 months, from date of joining. For every duty not completed within each 3 month period, there will
be a $15 fine charged to your account that will require payment.
There is a duty roster available here; please fill in dates convenient to you. If you are unable to attend a scheduled duty it is your responsibility to notify the librarian (leave a message on the
answerphone if necessary). If you fail to turn up for duty or do not give us at least 3 days’ notice of your inability to complete a scheduled duty, we have the discretion to fine you $15.
We will not take responsibility if you run out of time to complete duties.
All members may be asked throughout the year to contribute towards fundraising events.
Any amendments to these rules will be notified through an email to members.
