The East Grampians Health Service Ark Toy and Activity Library has reopened for 2018 in temporary premises.

The Toy Library will operate out of the Heritage Room at EHGS while awaiting the completion of new purpose built rooms at the soon to be redeveloped EGHS Community Health Centre.

The Community Health Centre and Community Nursing buildings are currently undergoing a $4.12 million redevelopment.

Toy Library president Kaye Chamings said that while it was very exciting to see the development of the Toy Library’s new space, it was business as usual in the temporary premises.

“The Toy Library offers a lending service of games, toys, puzzles and DVDs for children and adults with special needs, as well as for groups of parents and babies, and people in aged care facilities,” Mrs Chamings said.

“While we are waiting for the completion of our new space, we will operate our weekly Wednesday opening sessions and parents’ and bubs groups from either the Heritage Room or Pyrenees House, depending on the size of the group.”

For further information, contact the Toy Library between 10am-12 noon on Wednesdays, on 5352 9453, or president Kaye Chamings on 5352 2289.

EGHS Community Health Centre clients are also being asked to use an alternative entrance on the west side of the Girdlestone Street building’s front while the redevelopment works are taking place.

As part of this project, the front entrance will be closed for at least four months to allow works to take place on the new front entrance and façade.
