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.

Due to  COVID-19 the library is currently unable to offer an in person service. We hope to resume as soon as it is safe to do so.

We are available in term time on Mondays during school hours for pre-arranged individual support online using video calls.

Our popular sling hire service is still available, with COVID quarantining procedures in place. Sling collection is from the library’s temporary home near Southbank.

Sling amnesty: If you have a sling borrowed at any time that you would like to return to us, or a sling that you would like to donate to the library then please contact us for the returns address.

Thanks to members of YSL past and present and York’s wider babywearing community for these images.
