Visiting the Library

Quakers and non-Quakers from all around the world use the Library - all are welcome. In January 2007 the Library  introduced a registration system. All users will have to complete a Reader Registration Form [PDF : 52.5kb- new window]on their first visit to the Library. Because of the uniqueness or rarity of many of our collections we ask all users to follow the Library Rules [Word: 60kb- new window] and Care and Handling of Library Materials instructions [Word: 167kb- new window] which you should read before visiting us.



Please note that from Summer 2014 to Spring 2015 there will be substantial building work in the Friends House Garden area. This will cause noise disruption at various times in the Library reading room.  We apologise for the inconvenience which this is likely to cause.

Closed week 2015

Please note the Library will be closed from 23 November – 27 November.    During this period we’ll be doing things that we can’t do when we’re open, such as moving stock.

Please note the Library will be closed on the afternoon of Thursday 13 August 2015
