Important announcement for our April meetings!

Hello BWI DC/MD/VA members!
We have some exciting news for all of you who enjoy the benefits of our lending libraries. In the last few months we have had some amazing new carriers donated to our group as well as the opportunity to purchase some additional new carriers direct from retailers at discounted BWI rates. We have new carriers from brands like Lillebaby, Tula, Wildbird, West of 4th Wovens, Kinderpack and more! We are very excited to get these carriers into our lending libraries so that you can all begin trying them out as soon as possible.
What this means for members:
At our April meetings we invite you to come to our 101 demonstrations and try out any of our carriers, but we will not be offering check-outs. In order to get all of our new carriers into the libraries where they are most needed we will need to pull all of our carriers together and "shuffle" libraries. At this time we will also be assessing all of the carriers in our libraries for condition and safety and retiring any carriers that are just too well loved to continue as library carriers. This means that you will be seeing new and new-to-your-library carriers at your May meetings! Carrier check-outs will resume at all May meetings.
And a bonus:
As our way of saying THANK YOU for bearing with us as we work to better serve you all we are going to offer an incentive to those members who want to check out carriers at our May 2017 meetings! Each member will have the opportunity to either check out one carrier for two months OR check out two carriers for one month. This is a great opportunity to try out a carrier made for the pool/beach just as summer starts.
Thank you again for your understanding! If you have any questions please feel free to email us at
