Saturday, August 19th, 10am-11:30am

This meeting will be held at LifeSouth, located at 4039 W. Newberry Rd in Gainesville.


Thank you to everyone who participated in any of our birthday celebration events last month! Our fundraising efforts were more successful than we had dared to hope. We will be able to fund all the projects we had planned as well as set some aside for new projects! More purchases will be incoming, but we have added six new carriers to our lending library thus far!

The weekend carriers will be ready for checkout at our 8/19 meeting. The weekday carriers will be there as well but only for petting and inspection en route to their home in the weekday library. You can find more information on all these carriers at our library inventory page.

Bring your own carriers to the meeting to receive assistance from one of our Volunteer Babywearing Educators. Or find a new carrier option through the Lending Library. Members are encouraged to check out carriers to practice for the month. Borrowed carriers are due back no later than the first 15 minutes of the meeting. If you have a carrier that needs laundering, or you need to return it before the meeting, please contact Anne at

The Little Lenders Library now contains over 20 toy carriers for children to take home and play with for the month. Wearing baby dolls and stuffed animals normalizes babywearing for future generations. This is a free add on for children of BWI members.
