Toy story’s new, bigger scene hits Sunbury

The Sunbury Toy Library has a new, bigger home. So it’s preparing to expand its collection of 400 toys at the new site, a former maternal and child health centre.

After months of negotiating with Hume council, the Dobell Avenue site, which has been vacant for several years, has become the library’s new home.

The toy library started in Sunbury in 1990. It has had several homes, including the leisure centre and Sunbury Neighbourhood House.

Library members can borrow good-quality toys, games and puzzles.

Committee member Jemma Gibcus said the library’s aim was to support families and encourage learning through play.

“We think Sunbury deserves a good toy library as a community resource for the many young families who live here, which is why the volunteer committee worked so hard to make this move happen.”
