Library Access

Access to all the library’s collections is available through the first floor Reading Room.  The library contains ReferenceManuscripts and Graphics as well as the archives of the New England Yearly Meeting of Friends (pdf).  Many materials are stored in our closed stack area and are retrieved (paged) by the library staff and brought to the Reading Room for your review.  Please refer to the Paging Schedule on the Library’s main page and plan your visit accordingly.

Hours: Wednesday-Friday, 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.  2nd Saturday of the month, 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

A wheelchair entrance is available via a paved pathway to the right of the front entrance stairs, through a gate in the white fence surrounding the library. Please ring the bell to the left of the rear door for entrance to the Reading Room. Once admitted, please proceed to the sign-in desk for registration.
