I don't intend to subscribe to a streaming site if I purchase the Sonos 1, so can i listen to music from my phone library etc?

Depends on your phone. If it’s an Android, then yes, if it is an iPhone, then no, as Apple has removed the ability for your phone to act as a NAS. All sorts of caveats around that no, though, most importantly being it is a yes, if you have a Sonos device that can be an AirPlay 2 target, so you can use AirPlay 2 to send the Apple Music app’s playing to the speaker.
There are multiple other ways of playing Sonos other than from your phone, as that ability was added after the original system was released.
