The Toy Scoop - August 2022
August 2022 Newsletter
Hello to our members, new and old! Thankfully this wet winter is coming to a close, though we have seen that families have been using the toy library just as much as ever.
For members who are yet to complete their volunteer rosters, we have added the next month's calendars to our website. Click the links below to nominate for an open session for Atwell or Coolbellup in August or September. We very much appreciate it if you can turn up 10 minutes prior to opening, to familiarise yourself with the systems and help with set up. If you have less than 2 months left of your membership with outstanding rosters, we may nominate an upcoming shift for you.
Square Transaction Fees
As of August 15 2022 we will be passing on the transaction fees to members who choose to pay their membership fees via our Square Card Reader. This will equate to an approximately 2% surcharge on our standard membership fees.
Membership fees paid by bank transfer will remain unchanged. If you would like to avoid paying the surcharge when renewing your membership, we advise to use this mode of payment.
We would be very grateful if you could take 5 minutes to jot down some thoughts about your experience using our toy library. We know that referrals and word of mouth are the best marketing and would love to include some of these online. You can use the survey form below or review it directly through Google.

Are you free on the above Thursday afternoon? We hope that you can come and help us with assessing toys for playability, checking batteries, and other general jobs. This is a chance for members who aren't available to volunteer during our open hours to help out at the toy library. Please sign up below:
Thanks to everyone who voted in our Instagram poll in June! We added 4 new Serenitoys wooden items to the collection. There was also a small purchase made of licensed toys, and a huge influx of donated toys. We added more than 50 toys in the last month!
Yours in Play,
Cockburn Toy Library Committee
