Tired of screens? Read a book! No more space at home for books? Borrow one from the Library.
Housed on the third floor of the 87th Street building, the library has a rich collection of books on the Bible, holidays, theology, guides to Jewish living, and Israel, as well as fiction, poetry, and short stories, for everyone from toddlers to their grandparents.Library books are in three rooms:
Beit Midrash: Adult nonfiction, short stories, and poetry
Room 3A (next door): Biographies, memoirs, and oversize books
Room 3B (diagonally across the Gallery, behind the Chapel): Children's books, YA fiction, and adult fiction
The library is available for browsing and reading unless there is a class taking place in the room.
To sign out a book, please fill out a form and leave it in the box.
There are forms and a box in each of the library rooms. NOTE: The form asks for the number on the book’s barcode label. The barcode label is either on the back cover of the book or on the title page. Under the barcode, there is a 6-digit number beginning with a 1. That is the number you need to fill in on the form, NOT the letters and numbers on the book’s spine.
If it is Shabbat, take the book, and after Shabbat, email the information requested on the form after Shabbat.
