Lending Library

With the donations from generous mamas in the community and some fundraising efforts, we have over 60 carriers in our lending library! Members are allowed to borrow one carrier each month for the year of their membership. (Lending times may vary due to our new checkout process in order to be as safe as possible.) Please consider donating a carrier that you no longer use or need.

To request a carrier, please fill out this form. If you don’t hear back within 2 days, please email AmesAreaBabywearing@gmail.com. 

Carriers will be available for contact-less pick up and drop off in a Central Ames location. They will be laundered as much as possible, per manufacturers instructions, and placed in a new airtight bag before lending. Written instructions are available upon request.
