The CHB Toy Library is a non-profit organisation that offers toys for hire at affordable prices, from 50c up to $5. We employ a Toy Librarian, Joan who opens and runs a majority of the toy library sessions so that members can return and hire out toys for a fortnightly period. Joan relies on volunteers each duty to assist her with checking in and out toys.
The CHB Toy Library was founded in 1992 and then officially incorporated with the charities commission in 1993. Since then the library has gone through many changes, highs & lows, from operating out of the back of the Waipukurau Library, to moving to its own premises in 2003 which is where we are now. It is only through the continued help of wonderful volunteers, funding from local business’s, donations of services, toys and/or money and grants over the years that has kept the library strong.
