Welcome to the library catalogue of the Sheffield Sling Surgery and Library! We are based at the Snug, 71 Leadmill Road, S1 4SE, next door to the Sling Spot shop, which is open daily 10-2pm Mon to Friday, 10-1pm Saturday.
We have a very large lending library and run regular drop in sessions at the Snug, and at monthly branch sessions around Sheffield.
Rosie runs the Surgery with her husband Rob and her manager Kiri and they are supported by a fabulous team of consultants, peer supporter volunteers. We have a strong focus on the importance of carrying, building bonds within the family and fostering a community.
The catalogue can be browsed here. Slings cost £5 per week to hire when the fee or its renewal are paid in advance, £15 for four weeks. The daily rate is £1. Slings that are renewed or returned after their due date will be charged at the daily rate. A sling can be hired for up to three months continually (to remain compliant with the Consumer Credit Act), after this a new hire must begin.
Please reserve any carriers you wish via this form www.bit.ly/slingsurgeryreservation
Terms and Conditions of hire are here; we do not charge a deposit to hire, but lost or damaged slings must be replaced.
We also offer fast-track hires by arrangement, and slings can of course be hired from our workshops and consultations.
Slings can be returned to the library drop in sessions or to the Sling Spot shop, where you can buy your own carrier!
