Nappy Libraries:

Nappy libraries provide parents with the opportunity to trial a variety of cloth nappy styles and brands before investing in the option that works for them. Libraries are run by volunteers. Parents are asked to leave a refundable cash deposit which is returned once the nappies have been washed and returned to the nappy library for others to use.
