Canterbury Meeting Library

Canterbury Meeting Library

Canterbury Quaker Meeting has a library collection of about a thousand publications. The shelving is divided into several sections, including Quaker history, Quaker spirituality, Christian spirituality, the spirituality of other religions, and social action and witness.

The purpose of the library is to make the books held by the library available to Members and Attenders of Canterbury Meeting. This purpose is best served when the library is well used. When did you last read a Swarthmore Lecture?
 
The aim of this section of the website is to list and highlight publications held in the library so that Friends might feel prompted to borrow them. 
 
The full catalogue is available for download, the link to which is below. What is presented is a simple list in the form of a MS Excel spreadsheet, making the data fully searchable. This format is also readable by Google Drive, into which it can be imported directly.
There are also lists of recent accessions to the library:
 
 
 
 
 

If you have read a book held in Canterbury Meeting Library, and are keen to recommend it to Friends, then please consider writing a short (a paragraph or two) description of the book, along with details of the book (title, author, year of publication), and suggest why others might benefit from reading it. Please give the information to Peter Hughes who will ensure that the details are uploaded:
