Borrowing
* In applying for membership of the Maroondah Toy Library Inc, members agree to abide by these Rules and its Constitution and to indemnify the Library, its committee, members and staff against all loss or liability, however caused, arising from any borrowing of any toys or other items.

* General collection toys must be returned or renewed within 21 days of borrowing to avoid a late fee of $5 per week overdue. You can renew your toys online once online, by phone or by email.

* Hire Toys must be returned within 7 days of borrowing or a $20 per day overdue charge will apply.

* A puzzle counts as half a toy, one book and cake tin can be borrowed in addition to your borrowing, and one Duty Toy can be borrowed in addition to your borrowing when completing rostered duty.

* Check toys to ensure that all pieces are present before you bring them out for play.

* If any missing pieces are not noted on bag, please let us know (9723 0866 or [email protected]) to avoid paying the $2 missing piece fine. If a puzzle or game piece goes missing the item becomes unplayable and members will be encouraged to reborrow the item until the piece is found, otherwise a $20 fine will be applied.

* Members are responsible for the toys they borrow. This includes but is not limited to the correct use of the toy, the age of the child playing with the toy, taking care with small parts and magnets, and taking care to ensure toys aren’t left outside in the elements.

* Toys need to be returned in the condition that they were borrowed and with all pieces intact and the toy cleaned

* Members agree to receive communications by email and roster reminders via sms.

* Parents must ensure helmets and appropriate footwear are worn when riding toy library balance bikes or scooters. It is the member’s responsible to provide their own helmet and ensure it is worn during use. Members agree to the terms of the waiver, release and indemnity for bicycles and scooters (see waiver below).

 

Duty
Members are required to attend 4 x 2-hour volunteer duties per 12 months unless you have joined as a Premium member. Please sign up/amend duty online once we have emailed you the online login details. You are welcome to do multiple shifts per term or day.
* If you become unavailable for a rostered duty please remove your name from the roster as soon as possible. If you need to cancel your duty within 48 hours of a session please call or email us so we can organise a last-minute replacement.
* If you fail to let us know at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your rostered duty that you are unavailable to attend, a $25 no-show fee will be applied to your account and you will need to complete a make-up session at a future date.

 

Returning 
* Before returning toys, ensure they are clean. A damp microfibre cloth or similar will do the trick. Dirty costumes should be gently washed. 

 

WAIVER, RELEASE AND INDEMNITY FOR BICYCLES AND SCOOTERS

The Maroondah Toy Library (‘Provider’) is pleased to make bicycles and scooters available to subscribers (‘the Service’).

As a subscriber to the Service you acknowledge that there are dangers and risks inherent with bicycle and scooter riding (the ‘Activity’) to which any child under your supervision (‘Your Child’) may be exposed.

The Provider does not provide protective clothing or bicycle helmets and it is your responsibility to ensure that Your Child wears a helmet at all times and is otherwise appropriately attired when participating in the Activity. You agree that Your Child will participate in the Activity at your own risk. You also agree to voluntarily assume responsibility for supervising the Activity and any injury, death or property damage you or Your Child may suffer or cause as a result of participating in the Activity.

To the maximum extent possible at law, you (both in your personal capacity and on behalf of Your Child) agree to release, hold harmless and indemnify the Provider and its respective officers, employees, servants, agents and contractors (the ‘Indemnified Persons’) against all actions, claims, suits, costs, expenses, demands and damages suffered or incurred by the Indemnified Persons or any one or more of them by reason of, or in respect of, or in any manner whatsoever arising out of, or caused by, your use of the Service or Your Child's participation in the Activity.

You agree that you are subscribing to the Service on the express condition that the Provider:

(a) will, under no circumstances be liable or responsible in any manner whatsoever for any death, loss, accident, damage or injury to you, Your Child or any of your servants, agents, contractors, visitors or invitees or any other person whatsoever (‘Related Party’) which may happen as a result of your use of the Service or Your Child participating in the Activity; and

(b) will not incur or be under any liability whatsoever to you, Your Child, or to any Related Party for any loss, damage or injury to or in respect of any of your property or of any Related Party’s property.

The Provider is not liable to you, Your Child or any Related Party in respect of any indirect or consequential loss. For the avoidance of doubt, ‘consequential loss’ means loss or damage arising from a breach of contract, tort (including negligence), under statute or any other basis in law or equity of an indirect or consequential nature including, but without limitation, loss of profits, loss of revenue, loss or denial of opportunity, loss of goodwill, loss of business reputation, future reputation or publicity, damage to credit rating and indirect, remote, abnormal or unforeseeable loss, or any similar loss whether or not in the reasonable contemplation of the parties.
