Sling libraries are the perfect opportunity to try different baby carriers before you invest in one for you and your little one. In our library we have a selection of different types of carriers, from stretchy wraps to soft structured carriers suitable from newborn to toddler and our experienced sling library coordinators can help you find one that is comfortable for you and suitable for the age and stage of your baby.
In order to comply with COVID19 guidance to attend our Sling Library session, you need to book a timed slot. There will be 4 slots of 30 minutes, where you will have the time to look at the slings and speak to a dedicated sling library volunteer.
Carriers are usually hired for a 10 day period but extended hires can often be agreed if required for a holiday, for example. We charge £5 to hire a sling for 10 days and also ask for a cheque or cash deposit. We charge £30 deposit for stretchy wrap carriers and £50 for all other carriers. At present, the only way we have to take payment for hires and deposits is by cash. We are working on alternatives at present, but want to get the library up and running again.
Deposits (cash or cheque) will be safely stored and will be returned provided the sling is returned in the same condition as it was hired.
