About us

BOOKINGS NOTICE: Thank you so much for your support this autumn. We are now closed to new in person bookings this term with all slots filled. We are currently assessing whether it is affordable to keep going in our present format and will post news on the spring term early in 2022. 

Online help including Zoom calls, and contact free hires, will continue to be available for most of December and January so do get in contact if you are in need of assistance (more info can be found on the bookings page).

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 is returning for autumn 2021 in a limited face to face capacity. Due to ongoing disruption due to Covid 19, we will be welcoming families with pre-booked appointments to our new venue, the vestibule of Southlands Church on Bishopthorpe Road, between 10:00 and 13:00 on the following Mondays:

20th September, 4th and 18th October, 1st, 15th 22nd and 29th November, 6th and 13th December.

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.
