SAVE OUR TOY LIBRARIES

We love our Toy Libraries in Carlton, Kensington and the Docklands. 

They’re great places to borrow free toys, but also for families to stay connected and meet, learn and play together.

But these volunteer-run toy libraries can’t provide this service for much longer without support. They need funds to help operate the libraries day-to-day. Without Council funding, they risk having to close.

Sign our petition calling on Lord Mayor Sally Capp to Save Our Toy Libraries in Carlton, Kensington and Docklands so they can continue to serve Melbourne families for years to come.


The Docklands Branch of Melbourne Community Toy Library has recently opened and
uses this wonderful community garden nearby, but it's under threat without urgent funding.

SAVE OUR TOY LIBRARIES

TAKE ACTION

Dear Lord Mayor Sally Capp, 

Our community loves our toy libraries (in Carlton, Kensington and the Docklands) but they’re under threat because they can’t keep up with demand without funding to help staff them.

I’m calling on you, and Melbourne City Council, to fund these toy libraries and make sure they can continue to thrive into the future.
