Toy library thriving in new location

SWAN View Toy Library is now operating with a new home and looking for new members to join.

Shire of Mundaring President David Lavell said the toy library relocated to the Brown Park Community Centre in July.

"The former commercial kitchen was renovated to provide a custom space for the toy library to occupy," he said.

"This is a great location for the toy library as it is centrally located in the west ward. With many community members attending the Centre for sports and youth activities, this provides great exposure to potential members."

Cr Lavell said members paid a low annual fee to join the service.

"This fee gives members access to a wide range of toys for children aged from birth to eight years," he said.

"Available for loan is a range of puzzles, games, party packs, construction, ride-on toys, and toys designed to include children with disability.

"This is great for children as the items provide new stimulation for curious minds."

In late 2015 Council resolved to withdraw financial operating support for the service and offer opportunities to the community to deliver the service independent of Shire financial support.

The Shire continues to support both toy libraries, along with many other community groups, through the leasing of premises, grants and training.

The Swan View Toy Library operates from Brown Park Community Centre on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.

Mundaring Toy Library operates from Craig Street on Thursday and Saturday mornings.
