Library Locations

The Library's primary location is Firbank. Many of the resident program classes are held here.

A significant part of the Quaker collection is located in Upmeads, in the beautiful library room of that residence. Many of the books in this part of the collection are very old and rare. The oldest date to the 1600's.

The journals are located in Main House. There are many Quaker journals, as well as some popular and alternative-press publications.
