Kia Ora Koutou, 

What a year we are having so far, I think everyone is craving normality and better weather right! 

Updated Opening Hours 

We will be open on Wednesdays again from next week (15.06.2022). Our hours will be what they were previously; 

Wednesday 10am – 1pm 

Thursday 2.30 - 4.30pm 

Friday 10am – 1pm 

Saturday 10am – 1pm 

We will also be opening for browsing the toys from next week 🥳. The Click and Collect service will still be available as it always has been. 


Playgroup 

Playgroup returns to Fridays starting on the first Friday of Term 3 (29.07.2022) 🥳. Come along and have a cuppa and a chat while your wee ones play, we have some exciting activities to celebrate the return of playgroup. 

Playgroup runs every Friday 10am – 12pm, gold coin donation (starting Term 3). 


Watch This Space... 

We are working hard to organise a Toy Sale to make room for new toys to be added to the library! Keep your eyes peeled for new and exciting toys to hire in the coming months. We will advertise the Toy Sale so look out for that too! 


Returning Toys 

Please do not return toys outside of our open hours. If you need to return toys urgently and we are not open please contact our Te Puke Toy Library President on 0276200889 


With the high level of illness in our community at the moment, please remember to stay home if you are unwell. 

We are looking forward to seeing all of you!

We are still operating our quarantine process for all returned toys, please bring returns around the back and into the silver shed. The toys will quarantine for 3 days minimum and then be cleaned ready for the next family to borrow.


 
Our lawns just keep on growing!! So we are on the look out for any volunteers who may be able to assist with occasional lawn mows.
Our usual service providers are unable to assist due to Covid reductions.... Our committee just love volunteering, but any extra help is always greatly appreciated from our amazing community. If you can help please get in touch.
