Library

 

Our library is mostly on shelves on the east wall of the Fellowship Room in the meetinghouse.  The books for children are in one of the nearby small meeting rooms.

A catalog of our books, pamphlets, and other items is on LibraryThing.com.  You can find it at http://www.LibraryThing.com/catalog/ConcordQuakers.  You may wish to click on the column labeled ‘Dewey/Melvil’, which will sort the list by Dewey Decimal Number; this may be more convenient for browsing by subject.  Alternately, you may wish to seach by 'tag'.  Feel free to have a play; you can't break anything. 

New England Yearly Meeting has put a catalog of its religious education lending library on LibraryThing.com.  You can find the catalog at http://www.LibraryThing.com/catalog/NEYM_RE_Library.

While we have many Pendle Hill Pamphlets, you may wish to download your own copies of some of the first fifty or so pamphlets from their web site at http://www.pendlehill.org/php.

You can find archived issues of Quaker Life, the magazine of Friends United Meeting (FUM), at http://www.fum.org/QL/.  Archived issues of Friends Journal are available at http://www.FriendsJournal.org/archives-contents.  Britain Yearly Meeting publishes Quaker News, which is available at http://www.quaker.org.uk/quaker-news, and various newsletters are at http://www.quaker.org.uk/newsletters.  Although The Friend, an independent British Quaker weekly magazine, does not have free access to archived issues, it's worth browsing their website at http://TheFriend.org/.

There are a number of Quaker bookshops, including the following.

You can find documents from World Conference of Friends 2012 "Being Salt and Light - Friends living the Kingdom of God in a broken world" at http://www.saltandlight2012.org/.
