For the month of September, the library is closed for maternity leave, with reduced services until the new year. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
If you have a library carrier and have any questions or issues during the library closure period you can contact Mari, a trained carrying consultant, on 07980 280153.
If your carrier is due back during September please return by post as agreed to Nicola Lawson, 19 Cote Lane, Farsley, Leeds, LS28 5ED. Please send by protected mail and retain proof of posting until the library re-opens on Oct 3rd.
If you are looking for general sling advice and help, the library will re-open for returns and queries fortnightly in October – 3rd, 17th, 31st.
There are many sling groups and places for help and advice both locally and online, there is a list of contacts below.
Thank you so much for all your best wishes and congratulations. Watch this space, and the library facebook page, for baby news! Which sling should be the baby’s first?
