Covid library session faq

Please read this carefully before booking!

Do I need to wear a mask?
Yes please, unless you are medically exempt please wear a mask while in the building. The consultants will also be wearing masks (except in cases where they are medically exempt) so if you are a lip reader or masks will generally impede communication please contact us so we can work out the best thing to do.

Is there somewhere I can wash my hands?
Yes, our venues have toilets and we have hand sanitiser for you to use.

Is everything clean?
As clean as it can be! All the slings and carriers are washed between hire but you may try on carrier that has been tried on by someone else. We will be using suck pads to protect the carrier straps though.

Will you teach me how to use my own carriers?
Yes. And while we usually get things working for people if you decide to hire from our stock you can do! You can use our fit check service to be taught via zoom how to use something you already have!

How do I pay for hire?
Please bring a card to pay with, or a phone that has data and can access paypal. Hire is £5 per week.

Do I need to bring the baby with me?
Ideally yes. and please bring something to put them on or in for when you need your hands!

Can I hire nappies?
Yes! We have very limited kits available at the moment so please contact us as you’ll need to reserve a kit to avoid disappointment. We can offer advice and while we know a lot but we’re still learning. So, please be aware that we may need to take your email address and get back to you after asking more experienced cloth nappy librarians!

I don’t feel comfortable coming into venues, is there another way I can learn?
Yes. We have consultations available in your home (or garden if you prefer and the weather holds up.). We also have zoom consultations available! You can collect carriers and nappies ro hire, or we can post out/deliver for a small fee (the price for delivery depends on where you live). Send us an email to enquire.
