Toy Libraries at the Library

Our libraries work with three local Toy Libraries in the Port Phillip Area to allow local residents and families to borrow toys to save money and protect the environment.

Toy Library Pop Up Sessions

From February 10 join us at the St Kilda Library for our jam packed Fridays, featuring our regular Baby Rhyme Time at 10 am, Tiny Tots at 11 am and Elwood Toy library pop-up sessions fortnightly from 11.30 am!

Elwood Toy Library pop-up sessions are in partnership with the Elwood Toy Library, who will be providing a curated collection of interactive toys for you to enjoy at the library every fortnight.

All sessions are free, no bookings are necessary and the sessions are suitable for ages 0–6 years.
