Butter Month is here!

September is butter month at the toy library. Bring a block of butter or a $5 donation to the toy library and be in to win a $20 concession card. Every block of butter or $5 donation enters your name in the draw. Butter is the most expensive ingredient in our truffles and your donations help us bring down the cost of truffle-making, thus providing the library with more profit for buying toys. See the 'Truffles' tab on our website for more information and for the Library's bank details.

Easter Colouring Competition

The Mornington Toy and Games Library will again be hosting its annual Easter coloring competition. Watch your email for a PDF of the coloring page, or pick one up from Rebecca the next time you're in at the library! Entries are due on 24 March and prize winners will be drawn from each of the following categories: under 2’s, 2-3 years, 3-4 years, 4+.

New phone number

Please note that the Toy Library now has a new phone number:  027 553 5029. Feel free to give us a ring if you know you won't make it in to renew your toys this weekend.

Thank you, Lottery Community Grant!

The Mornington Toy Library would like to thank the Lottery Community Grant for providing the funds for us to purchase some amazing new toys! Here's a selection of toys recently purchased...   

Butter Month

It's Butter Month at Mornington Toy Library!! To support our upcoming truffles fundraiser, we are now accepting donations of blocks of butter during our open hours. Each butter donation enters your name into a draw for a $20 concession card (or additional summer toy hires for premium members). Butter donations will be especially important this year as the price of butter has risen in recent months. To keep our truffle quality high, we can only accept brands without added water such as Anchor, Alpine and Mainland. We can also accept cash in lieu of butter - your name will still be added to the concession card draw, equivalent to as many blocks of butter as your donation is worth. So help us get truffles rolling by making a contribution to Butter Month today! Donations accepted through September.
