I hope you are all keeping safe and well during these unusual times.
Having considered the advice from the government, and other areas of the country, we have decided to postpone all car seat libraries until September - I will continually review this stance, of course.
Although many baby shops are able to now plan to reopen from June, I don't feel the measures required to operate safely are suitable for a car seat library. Libraries often have 2/3 members of staff, and see on average 25 people over the course of a 2 hour library - it is non stop! There simply would not be the space or time between visitors to clean everything sufficiently, and our number one priority is always safety - be that car seat safety or our health!
I cannot wait to get back to running libraries, in the meantime, I am running weekly Facebook Lives over on our Facebook page, every Thursday at 8.15. Each week I cover a different topic related to car seat safety. I am also running regular virtual libraries, where you can request demonstrations on individual products to see their features and fitting.
I'm currently using this enforced down time to build our social channels, so as many people as possible know about Car Seat Libraries when we can hit the road again! So be sure to like the page, and invite your friends!
Thank you for your support.
