The Bath Cloth Nappy Library is now open!
If you are new to cloth and want to learn more, or an old hand with a new issue, Bath Cloth Nappy Library has nappies for you to try and information to share.
The library runs regular nappuccinos to enable the sharing of information and experience, locally in Bath. They also provide a loan service, where parents may borrow nappies from the library to determine whether cloth is for them. A small charge is made to cover the costs of running the library, and enable us to expand the range of nappies available for loan.
The library is run by cloth nappy expert Ruth Walcot, every Friday 1-3pm at the Percy Community Centre, New King Street, Bath BA1 2BN
