Toy Libraries Australia is the peak body for over 160 toy libraries in Australia. It is a non-profit incorporated association, representing libraries in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania. (Our sister organisation in Western Australia, WAATL, covers that state.)
Toy Libraries Australia promotes the importance and the value of play. It aims to raise the profile of toy libraries in the community by publicising the role of toy libraries in promoting play, educating children and supporting families.
Encouragement, information and advice is offered to prospective and existing toy libraries, using accumulating knowledge and depth of experience. Networking of libraries is a key priority.
Membership fees fund the work of the association which is managed by a Committee who offer their services on a voluntary basis. The Committee meets bi-monthly and consists of employees and volunteers from a variety of toy libraries.
Toy Libraries Australia is proud to represent and support toy libraries from Frankston in Victoria to Mackay in Queensland.
