April news: Increased open times & Child care subsidy

Extending Open times:

Thank you to everyone who responded to our in-library survey. We are excited to announce that we are extending two of our sessions from the 15th April.

Fridays 9.30am - 12 pm

Saturdays 9.30-1.30 pm

We will be trialing these increased times and monitoring the changes of membership numbers and usage. This trial will run for 3 months, we look forward

to informing you of the progress.

Child care subsidy:

As presented in our last news update, Kingston Toy Library is registered as an organisation with Services Australia so that members can record their volunteering hours as activity hours to go towards the child care subsidy.

To understand more about the activities recognised for the child care subsidy and how they factor into determining your subsidy, you can refer to the following resources provided by Services Australia:

Please get in touch if you would like assistance in how to go about this.

Event assistant:

We are looking for some members to assist at a local event being held on Saturday 4th May in Aspendale. We will be attending the Market held at Yarrabah School, we have a space inside, so no need to worry about the weather. These duties are on Setls to sign up or email Catherine for more information.
