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 babywearing consultants or babywearing peer supporters.

Important Notice:  Due to illness our 6th July 2019 session is CANCELLED!

Our Monday sessions are held twice a month from 9:30-11:00 at Knavesmire Childrens Centre.

Monday sessions are located in the Tulip Room at Knavesmire Children’s Centre.  This is a cosy venue so  advanced booking is essential

Our dates for spring/summer 2019 are: April 29th, May 13th, 20th, June 3rd, 17th, and July 1st and 15th.

New for 2019: Sling Saturday Specials! You said “do you just open on Mondays?” and we thought well, a lot of volunteers who work full time would still like to be involved, let’s see what we can do…  As a trial for 2019 we will be running 6 special Saturday sessions at the Stables Yoga Centre from 14.00-15.30

Saturday library dates for 2019 are: February 2nd, April 6th, May 18th, July 6th Cancelled!, October 5th, December 7th.

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