The Bingara Toy Library offers the community much more than the name suggests. Not only is it a safe, fun, secure place for children to learn to mingle with others, it gives adults the opportunity to:
- meet other local families
- learn more about parenting
- chat with others/staff about your tips and hints on how you manage parenting.
Naturally you can also borrow toys, so it is a great service for businesses and grandparents if they need to have toys while they hold an event or have the grandchildren home for the holidays.
A one off yearly fee of $20 allows you to become a non borrowing member of our library to enjoy the activities or use the parenting facilities or play with the toys within the safe surrounds of the toy library. Alternatively if you wish to borrow toys from our extensive range the cost is:
- $25 for a casual membership or
- $50 for a full membership.

You are invited to attend their free information sessions, go in and play, join them for a chat & a cuppa, use their parent room facilities or just pop in for a visit to view their great facilities.
Playgroup is run each Thursday during the school term from 10am til midday.
Play is more than just fun for kids. It is how babies and children learn, and how they work out who they are and where they fit in the world.
Playing is one of the most important things you can do with your child. The time you spend playing together gives your child lots of different ways and times to learn.
