New Library Suggestions
We have the latest releases from your favorite authors, not to mention a superb collection of non-fiction in religion, inspiration, humor, cooking, history, biography and current affairs. For students in high school and college - if you are doing research, particularly on Israel or the Holocaust, the Feinbloom Library has an extensive collection of books on the Holocaust and Israeli history and politics, as well as biographies of important Jewish figures both historical and contemporary. We also have memoirs of ordinary Jews who lived through extraordinary times. They are great resources - without all the competition for text use you find in the school library. They also make great reads for everyone else, since learning doesn't have to end at graduation. Impress your friends with your extensive knowledge of world events, history and religion - brush up using the resources in our library.
Reading is an important habit that starts young. Parents, help your children make this a lifelong passion by starting to read to them early and to encourage their own reading. We have a wonderful collection of children's books from early readers through young adults. Reinforce their reading skills and teach them about Judaism and Jewish values with the books in our collection.
If there is something we're missing, let us know and we will be happy to try and get it in. Hope to see you in the library!
