Awarded Toy Libraries Australia's Volunteer-run Toy Library of the Year 2022!
The Surf Coast Toy Library is a not-for-profit organisation, run for the community by the community. We provide a wide range of toys, puzzles, games and sporting equipment for the children of the Surf Coast Shire.
Members have access to thousands of toys that you can exchange as you would books at a library. Toys can be borrowed for a period of two weeks at a time. You can borrow up to four items at one time on a Single membership, or up to six items with a Family membership. Return and borrow toys as many times as you like! All families, grandparents and carers are welcome to join.
