Toy li­brary open day cel­e­bra­tion

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

MUNDARING Toy Li­brary is throw­ing its doors open to the pub­lic this Sun­day for an open day to cel­e­brate its suc­cess as a solely mem­ber- run or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Pres­i­dent Bruce New­ton said the li­brary wanted to cel­e­brate its con­tin­ued longevity since sep­a­rat­ing from the Shire of Mundaring a year ago.

“We’d like the com­mu­nity to see we are thriv­ing as an or­gan­i­sa­tion which of­fers a great ser­vice for fam­i­lies,” he said.

The open day will fea­ture free kids’ ac­tiv­i­ties and of­fers the com­mu­nity a chance to tour the li­brary’s fa­cil­i­ties and more than 1200 toys.

“The toy li­brary is a valu­able re­source for fam­i­lies with young chil­dren. It en­cour­ages sus­tain­abil­ity by re­duc­ing waste, of­fers a chance for mem­bers to try toys be­fore they buy them and is a hub for par­ents to meet and en­gage with one an­other,” Mr New­ton said.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call Mr New­ton on 0408 368 388.
