Plymouth Meeting Friends Library


The Meeting Library is a collection of books and magazines useful for understanding Quakerism, Spiritual growth and nurture, and issues of social order and concern. Books are cataloged in the digital catalog Librarything.

The library is currently closed, as it is located in the Annie H Wilson room which has been converted to a PMFS class room for the school year 2020 -2021. There are electronic educational resources below that are available to members and attenders. Over the coming months these electronic resources will be expanded.

Queries of our Faith and Practice

Friends have assessed the state of our religious society through the use of queries since the time of George Fox. Meetings use queries as a guide for self-examination, as a framework for periodically examining, clarifying and prayerfully considering the direction of our individual lives and the life of the meeting community.

Each query has a section directed to the corporate Monthly Meeting and a section for the individual Friend to consider. Friends at Plymouth consider one query per month and bring those considerations to our Monthly Business Meeting. The query of the month is listed in the Meeting newsletter.

Queries are grouped into these areas:
