About us

BOOKINGS NOTICE: Please email us or contact us via Facebook to book a place at the library, or to schedule a Zoom call if it is not safe for you to attend an in person meet. 

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.

The library began in 2011 and is back, after some time online in a face to face capacity. Due to ongoing disruption due to Covid 19, and a limited numbers of volunteers, we will be welcoming families with pre-booked appointments to the vestibule of Southlands Church on Bishopthorpe Road, between 10:00 and 12:00 on the following Mondays:

6th & 20th June, 4th & 18th July

Please take a look at our booking page for further details.

Always on the look out for slings: 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 bring it to a session or contact us for our returns address.

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