The Bilby Toy Library is now at BBNC
From the 1st November, 2018 Berkeley Vale Neighbourhood with a number of it’s services moved in to join the Bateau Bay Neighbouhood Centre. One of those services is the Bilby Toy Library.
The toy library is like a book library but you borrow toys from a selection of active play, baby, construction, music, pretend play, puzzles etc. We also have a selection of children’s books. The library caters to families with children aged from baby to 5 years old. A great place for Grandparents to join so that when the family come to stay or you babysit you will have access to a range of toys that won’t clutter the house.
Membership can be either 6 month or 12 months and there is a concession rate if you hold a Centrelink card.
