Rockingham Toy Library opens at new home
The Rockingham and Districts Toy Library has a new home at the Rockingham Central Library.
As reported in the Sound Telegraph in November, the organisation had been forced to move for the third time in five years, but this month moved into its new premises.
Following unsuccessful attempts to find a permanent new home that was suitable for the toy library’s needs, City staff and toy library volunteers worked together to transfer the service.
Past president of the toy library Karen East said the group was excited about the transition, which would open up the service to more members of the community.
Mayor Barry Sammels thanked the former toy library committee for being open to the idea of change and proactive in ensuring a long-term future for the service. “The City is delighted to be able to offer the toy library as a regular service, which will be free for all library members to use,” he said.
“As our community changes, so do the range of services and programs that our libraries offer.
“Services such as a toy library sit well within the set-up of a community library and will extend the wide range of services we are able to offer residents.”
