Why Become a Member of BWI of Gainesville, FL?


There are so many great reasons to join BWI of Gainesville, FL! Membership dues are $30 for a year, or $45 for a Family Membership.

Let’s explore some of the benefits to YOU when you commit to a year of membership.

Lending Library

ll-wrap-stackThis may be the reason that most people join our local chapter. Our expansive Lending Libraries are available at each meeting to demonstrate the various carrier types, to try on new carriers, and to take one home for a month to see what babywearing in daily life is like, or just try a new carrier for the month. With the standard membership, members are allowed to take home one carrier per month. Family memberships allow two Lending Library check outs per month. All carriers must be returned no later than the first 15 minutes of the next month’s meeting.
