Opawa St Martins Plunket Toy Library


Update April 2016!!


It is with much anticipation, and not a small amount of relief that Opawa St Martins Plunket Toy Library is returning to our home in April 2016! Repairs kicked off at our Sandwich Road Home in late November and we have been tracking progress over the summer holidays. The building needed new steel for strengthening, replacement of rotten beams and bearers, and then of course new gib, plaster and paint. 5 moves over 5 1/2 years has had a noticeable impact as we’ve seen membership reduce from 400 to 150. While this upheaval has certainly had some cost, it has not been without reward; OSMPTL is incredibly grateful to our members, who have committed to continuing to use the service despite the changes, to the core of dedicated committee who have kept the library running, to the YMCA, who have been incredibly considerate landlords, and to the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board who have supported & championed our endeavours to return home. If you’re already a member, we are thrilled to have you with us as we return to our home. If you’re new to the concept of a toy library OSMPTL offers an amazing range of toys for children aged 0 – 10 years and we would love to have you join our community. The end IS in sight! Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and a re-opening date, currently targeted at Saturday 16th April 2016.
