Description

The West Temple Library is a basic reference library for our congregation and school, and a Judaica Resource Center for the community-at-large.

Today the collection consists of approximately 7,000 items, including books and audiovisual materials. We receive 19 periodicals and the Index to Jewish Periodicals. The staff maintains an extensive vertical file of clippings, pictures and pamphlets. To inform the membership of additions to the collection, we publish an annotated New Book Column in our monthly Temple Bulletin.

To make this collection as easy to use as possible, everything is fully cataloged, and we use a modified Dewey Decimal System-Books may be borrowed for 4 weeks. New books, audio and video cassettes may be borrowed for two weeks.
