Meg’s Toy Box aims to support families in the community by giving parents access to a wide range of fun and educational toys for their children at a low cost.
The Toy Library stocks toys suitable for children aged 3 months to 5 years and toys can be hired for as little as 50 cents, with most costing just a few dollars. A yearly membership fee is charged plus refundable deposit.
It is a non-profit venture run entirely by volunteers with all funds put back into purchasing toys and maintaining the library. Members are encouraged to help with the running of the library.
Meg’s Toy Box is the only toy library in North Canberra. It was opened in 1991 and is a community toy library run with the support of St Margaret’s in the meeting room of the Church buildings complex.
