Join Our Library

Noah’s Ark library memberships are open to families, carers, organisations (Schools, health services, child care) which support a child or children with special needs. No formal diagnosis of a disability or special need is required before becoming a member.

We are particularly interested in assisting with early intervention and have a range of toys and resources that can be used while families are waiting for a formal diagnosis.
