About us

York Sling Library provides expert support to enable local parents to carry their children in comfortable, safe slings or carriers. The Library is run entirely by volunteers, many of whom are trained baby-wearing consultants or baby-wearing peer supporters.

Our sessions are held most Mondays during term time, from 9:30-11:30 at Knavesmire Children’s Centre.

Monday sessions are located in the Tulip Room at Knavesmire Children’s Centre.  This is a cosy venue so it really helps people to avoid a squeeze if you read the Ts&Cs in advance. 

Our dates for autumn 2019 are: September 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th October 7th, 14th, 21st, November 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th December 2nd, 9th and 16th.

Sling Saturday Specials:  As a trial for 2019 we have been running 6 special Saturday sessions at the Stables Yoga Centre from 14.00-15.30

Remaining Saturday library dates for 2019 are:  October 5th, December 7th.
