Festive information

Slings and baby carriers are very useful over Christmas. From soothing overwhelmed babies and toddlers, to negotiating sale shopping (or even non-sale shopping it gets to be a bit of a jungle out there). From assisting naps in unfamiliar places to wintery walks after you eat a spectacular amount of chocolate! So if you need something to carry your baby or toddler or pre-schooler in we’re here for you!

I’ve thought long and hard about how I’m going to manage the Christmas holidays this year. My daughter is growing up fast and I want to cram as much as I can in with her while Christmas is still magical which means that the library closes completely during the school Christmas holidays. They fall oddly this year so I’ve had to be a bit clever about returns.

If your (new) hire or renewal return date falls within the Christmas holidays you must post it back on or before your return date (I’ll check!), please send recorded so it’s insured. It will cost you £3.95 for second class recorded. You cannot return to my house, or any other venue during the time the library is closed.

Alternatively you can pay an additional hire fee of £4 to the library and keep the sling/carrier until the first library session on January 10th. This library session is in St Helens. If your hire is not returned by 12.30pm when the library session ends you will be liable for late fees and for every week or part thereof that you have the sling/carrier in your posession.

Late fees are (currently) the standard £4 per week hire fee. Hire fees should always be paid up front or as early as possible when you realise you’re overdue.

Effectively you get 2 weeks extra free over Christmas by taking us up on the offer and get to keep a carrier over Christmas and New Year!

Additional: Accessories are available too at £1 per week, they are exempt from this offer, due to the low cost you must pay £1 per week please for every week you wish to have them or post them back on or before their due date please.

Any questions as always just ask!
