The PYM Library

library_0

We conserve and lend materials on Quakerism faith, practice and history to all interested people.  Our goal is to help nurture the spiritual life of all seekers, members and friends.

Welcome to the Henry J. Cadbury Library

The PYM library has an extensive collection of 23,000 books, periodicals, and audio-visual items, for children and adults, dealing mainly with Quaker theology, history, biography and social concerns.

These materials are used for spiritual inspiration, research, and in Quaker studies programs, by monthly meeting groups, teachers and students, and by Philadelphia Yearly Meeting staff and individual borrowers.

Friends are welcome and encouraged to visit in person, or work with your Interim Meeting representative to transport borrowed items (a green thing to do). Mailing can be arranged if you pay for postage.

The PYM Library is open:
Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:00 – 6:00 pm,
1st Sundays 12:00 – 1:00
and
3rd Thursdays 6:00 – 8:00

PYM Library volunteer staff:

Kate Bregman, Joan Broadfield, Louis LeFevre, Melanie Monk, Chrissy Spallone, Rebecca Straus, Rita Varley
