New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Quaker Youth Education Lending Library

The Quaker Youth Education Lending Library is a service to Friends and First Day Schools in New England Yearly Meeting.   While lending privileges usually extend only to New England Friends, the new searchable catalog is a boon to First Day School teachers anywhere. Resources may be borrowed for up to several months to support children's programming in meetings and even for use in individual homes.  Please return them promptly when you no longer have need of them.

Contact Beth Collea to request books, curricula, or films at [email protected].  We use our Friendly Courier System for the delivery and return of books as much as possible.  Our courier system sends books to a regional Quaker gathering like a Committee Day or NEYM Ministry & Counsel and transfers them to a Friend returning to your meeting.  Materials may also be shuttled around via the postal service or picked up or dropped off at Wellesley Meeting where the QYE Lending Library is housed.  If mailing materials back, please send them to the Yearly Meeting office at 901 Pleasant Street, Worcester, MA  01602-1908.

Special thanks to Mark Barker, Concord Meeting, for converting our catalog into a searchable LibraryThing resource.   Our collection has almost 600 titles and can be found at www.librarything/neym/
