We have a large selection of books and perodicals covering a range of genres, from literature and legend to Yiddish and Jewish thought. For a complete list of categories refer to the Library sub-menu. All items may be borrowed by members for one month, renewable, provided the item has not been reserved in the meantime by someone else.

The library is there to be used, so please take advantage of it. Unread books are sad creatures: well read books are full of life.
