Toy Library Looking for Help

Hi Members
Happy Monday!
Just a reminder that we’re seeking volunteers to help us with Clubs Day this Saturday, 8:30am-12pm. If you can spare an hour or two, please let us know (email gove.toylibrary@hotmail.com or phone 0411587787).

Also, we’re still seeking Saturday volunteer helpers (10am-12pm). You don’t need to run the library yourself! You simply assist in cleaning, checking and returning items as well as other tasks, where time permits.

Thanks all! Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated
