Library

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. To borrow a book, pamphlet or periodical, please contact Pat Lipert on 01736 762675 to arrange collection. Pat may also be able to deliver items.

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.
