About us

The CHB Toy Library is a non-profit organization that offers toys for hire at affordable prices, $1 $2 or $3 for 2 weeks! We employ a Toy Librarian, Steve who opens and runs a majority of the toy library sessions so that members can return and hire out toys.


The Toy Library is run by a committee of volunteers, if you can help in any way please talk to us. We are always looking for new people and fresh ideas.

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.
