Read more about the founder of the library

Sale Sling Library is a well established, busy sling library run by Infant Carrying Consultant Hazel Spencer and her team of Peer Supporter and Consultant volunteers.  We are highly qualified and insured.  Having worked with hundreds of parents and children means we have extensive knowledge and experience in helping you choose the right sling.  Our sling library sessions allow you to try before you buy to find the sling that works best for you and your family.  We believe that there is a sling for everyone, no matter what your circumstance, and can help you on your path to confidently carrying your child.  At Sale Sling Library we can help you use a carrier safely, comfortably and with enjoyment.

The sling library is held every Friday 10am-1pm in the Community Space at Tesco Extra in Altrincham.
