|06-Aug-2013: 50c Toy Borrowing Fee|
From Thursday 8th August the Wanganui Toy Library will be introducing a 50c per toy borrowing fee for all toys (excluding puzzles) to cover running costs of the library.
|15-Feb-2013: Party Hire|
Having a children's party, but not sure how to keep them entertained - the toy library can now offer toys for party hire. Pay $20 and get FOUR of our larger toys (roller coaster, coupe car, slide, climbing frame or so on) for one week. This will be on top of your usual toy allowance. This offers great value, as these are usually popular gold star toys or proven favourites. This offer is ONLY AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS of the toy library, and bookings must be made in advance to ensure availability, due to limited storage space in the toy library. You can check out our range of these toy using the toy list on this website - search under Outdoor or Ride Ons. This cost has been considered carefully by the committee, and you couldn't buy these toys for that price! Why buy these toys, and then have to store them when you really only want them for a day, borrow them from us.
|29-Aug-2012: Internet Banking|
We are pleased to advise the Wanganui Toy Library can now accept internet banking payments. Please ensure your surname and initial plus membership number is used on any payments made electronically. This will ensure we can correctly match your payment. Failure to do so may incur a bank search fee. If you could send a confirmation email, this would be appreciated. firstname.lastname@example.org

Wanganui Toy Library Inc
This should make the payment of subscriptions and fees easier.
|19-May-2012: Cleaning of Toys|
Please ensure that before returning toys you have checked they are clean. We have had a few that have come in clearly covered in dirt or sand. We don't have the facilities for completely cleaning toys, and usually it's too busy to do so. It is members responsibility to make sure toys are returned in a clean state. Please don't be offended if you are asked to take an item home if it is dirty.
