Successful Chipotle Fundraiser!

A big thank you to everyone who came out to support BWI of Central VA at our Chipotle fundraiser last night.  In addition to providing great food Chipotle offers non-profits the opportunity to earn 50% of everything spent during special fundraising events.  What a great community supporter! We were able to earn over $140 that will be used for library acquisitions and outreach events.

More New Library Carriers!

President Courtney Glaze modeled two more new carriers added to the lending library this spring at our Saturday meeting today!  First her she wore her youngest in a Maya Wrap ring sling generously donated by one of our members.  

And later she showed off our brand new Toddlerhawk Mei Tai, purchased with at a special discounted price for lending libraries.  We have relationships with a variety of carrier manufacturers and retailers who graciously offer discounts to lending libraries so that we can stretch your membership dollars even further!  The Toddlerhawk is a great fit for Courtney's preschooler!

Come visit us at a meeting to see what is new this month!
