The Coorong Toy Library is a collaborative project between the libraries of the Coorong District Council: Meningie, Tailem Bend, Coomandook and Tintinara/Coonalpyn libraries. The toys have been purchased with funding received through a Public Libraries Collaboration Grant 2005.

The Coomandook Toy Library is situated in the Coomandook Community Library.
