Our Library

Our library is open to everyone after meeting on Sundays.  Most of the books can be borrowed.

We have a selection of introductory books about Quakers (or ‘Friends’), which are available to borrow. Our librarian is very happy to help suggest books about particular aspects of Quakerism or others on more general spiritual themes.

There is also a collection of books covering the following topics:

  • Quaker Biography
  • Quaker History
  • Theology
  • Environment
  • Social Issues
  • Peace & Justice
  • Fiction & Poetry
  • Psychology & Lifestyle

We also have quite a few books that don’t fall neatly into any one of these categories!

Friends suggest new titles and we try to keep them as up-to-date and topical as we can.

In addition to the books, we also have a small selection of DVDs/CDs and subscribe to The Friend (weekly Quaker magazine), Friends Quarterly and Ethical Consumer magazine.

These two recent titles are now on our shelves…
