Since joining Kilmore Toy Library and becoming president, Zoe Grey has enjoyed making the space, co-located at Kilmore library, fresh and welcoming. “My kids love it. Many of the toys are great for speech and language development,” she says.
Zoe says that there is a misconception that the toys are old or damaged. “Many are new, or close enough to,” she says. “Some are big, others are expensive. There’s even a roller coaster and ride-in car. They’re an absolute hit at birthday parties.”
Kilmore Toy Library, which is volunteer run, has now been active for 22 years. Membership is open to anyone within the Mitchell Shire.
“We’re located at the Kilmore Library, but we are independent,” Zoe says. “Our membership structure enables us to buy and maintain a wonderful collection for the families of the district,” she says.
“We’ve got toys suitable from infants to six years. Special needs are also accommodated.”
Open every selected hours on Saturday and every second Thursday.
