Terms of Borrowing

Parents and carers should supervise their child’s play. Bondi Toy Library Inc is not responsible for any damage or injury to any property or person arising from the use of the borrowed toys.


  1. Toys are lent for a maximum period of 2 weeks. However, members may exchange toys more frequently if desired.

  2. All toys have an identification number and a white toy card attached. The toy cards help members check all pieces are returned to the library. Toys must be complete on return or fines may be payable.

  3. Members are given a red library bag to help carry toys to and from the library. We ask members place toy cards and packaging in their red library bag when toys are being played with at home.

  4. If toys are lost, borrowing rights may be suspended until the toy is found or replacement cost is paid.

  5. Members must take care of the Library’s toys. Although, normal wear and tear is expected.

  6. Keep toys inside your house or at least under cover. If left outside in all types of weather, toys will be damaged.


  1. Members must wash or wipe toys with a diluted solution of antiseptic or disinfectant. Please be careful not to remove the identification number on the toy.

  2. Please return toys complete and in the condition they were borrowed, in their bag and with the accompanying Toy Library card attached. Puzzles should be returned made up.

  3. Please tell coordinators if there are missing pieces or if toys have been damaged, as they cannot be lent out again unless complete and in good condition.

  4. If your child is suffering from a communicable disease, please do not borrow toys until they are well. However, should your child have an infectious disease whilst toys are on loan, please disinfect them and leave in the sun for several days before returning them to the Toy Library and informing the coordinator on duty.

  5. Families who persistently return toys late, out of session hours or in an unacceptable condition can be penalized by a suspension of membership.

  6. Toys should only be returned during Toy Library session hours and not left at Waverley Library. Toys remain the responsibility of the borrower until received by a coordinator. If toys are returned to Waverley Library out of session hours, $2 fees will apply per toy.


The Bondi Toy Library ("Provider") is pleased to make bicycles and scooters available to subscribers ("the Service").

As a subscriber to the Service you acknowledge that there are dangers and risks inherent with bicycle and scooter riding (the “Activity”) to which any child under your supervision ("Your Child") may be exposed.

To the maximum extent possible at law, you (both in your personal capacity and on behalf of Your Child) agree to release, hold harmless and indemnify the Provider and its respective officers, employees, servants, agents and contractors (the “Indemnified Persons”) against all actions, claims, suits, costs, expenses, demands and damages suffered or incurred by the Indemnified Persons or any one or more of them by reason of, or in respect of, or in any manner whatsoever arising out of, or caused by, your use of the Service or Your Child's participation in the Activity.
