About the Library
The Library is a CITP & AANZPA-CW joint project. It is a resource for trainees, practitioners and trainers. The Library has been maintained since the 1980s and is constantly acquiring maintenance and new titles. It formerly had its home in 79 Bealey Avenue, Presbyterian Support in Bealey Avenue, Urban Eden in Barbados Street, The Philipstown Hub in Nursery Road – and in April 2021, we moved it to this little outbuilding at the Quaker Meeting House in 217 Ferry Road.
The library is accessible when there is a psychodrama event at the Quaker House.
Discuss with the organisers of the event, so they know who’s around and when. Here is a guide to times:
AANZPA meetings on third Tuesday every second month,
In March, May, July, September, November
Theatre of Spontaneity every first Tuesday of every month.
Personal Development Group on a Thursday evening with Kate & Walter— 5:30 – 6:30 Refer to web for dates

Notes from email with Migs (Quaker organiser)
“Tai Chi Wednesday mornings, someone could come in to look at the library between about 9.45 and 11.45, because that’s the in-house group I go to. They could even wander in to use the loo!”
“Sunday morning access from say 11.30 to 12.30? We’ve finished Meeting then, and are having a cup of tea and conversation.”
“The first Sunday of the month we have Meeting for Business and are in the building until around 1.30 / 2pish, which would be a longer easy-access period.”
Please respect the privacy and silence needed for groups in progress.
Avoid getting locked in behind the main gate.
Walter has a key to the main gate or will know who has it.
Contacting him may be another way to access the library (or get out 🙂
The card system is no longer in use. There is a book to keep a record.
